A visionary novel from the edge of the world. A Welsh community is drawn together and blown apart by a strange vision in the mountains- the huge spectre of a woman floating over a ridge. The people who live here in these mountains already have their own demons - drink, drugs, domestic violence, psychoses - but each character has a different experience of this strange apparition, a different reaction, and for some it will change everything. Is it a collective hallucination? A meteorological phenomenon? Whatever it is, they all saw something, early one morning on the shores of a mountain lake, something that will awaken in them powers and passions and, perhaps, a possibility of healing these broken people in a broken country. An examination of modern humanity's desperate need to live meaningfully and vividly in a mediated world - where individual autonomy is lost and the collective heart is atomised and exploited - this is a novel that gives voices to the marginalised, the dispossessed, the forgotten. Disturbing and unforgettable, darkly funny and deeply moving, written in a charged language that is vernacular, lyrical and hieratic all at once, Broken Ghost is - simultaneously - a howl of anguish and a summoning of gods. 'Combines myth, drug culture and iconoclastic political vision in a wild music that's also a call to arms. This important book outstrips even its own virtuoso literary technique' New Statesman… (mere)

Reminiscnet of Grits as opposed to his more recent works, this takes us back to drugs/counter-culture/dole existing on the fringes of society in Wales.

I like NG's stuff but felt it was a bit lazy from him in the subject matter and belongs to his earlier writing style. Still has the somewhat OTT adjective laden sections that feel forced at times. Some of the scenes I think also were for pure shock value and didn't do anything for the narrative. You'll know the ones I mean if you read it .... ( )
