Sheepshagger Summary


Sheepshagger by Niall Griffiths

Robbed of his ancestral home - a near-derelict hovel in the mountains of west Wales - Ianto pledges revenge not only on the English yuppies who have turned his grandmother's cottage into a weekenders' barbecue party but on all those who have violated him and the land that is his. This latest act of colonial oppression and desecration triggers his lurid and strange imagination into unspeakable savagery - embodying our most primal fears of physical threat, a world beyond our control.

Sheepshagger Reviews


"The plotting of the novel is cunning, the performance immaculate... The management and pacing of this material are masterly... He has produced a vital, driven and necessary book" -- Iain Sinclair * Independent on Sunday *
"Niall Griffiths is in complete command of his material... A hymn both ancient and modern to place and to unsentimental belonging" * Independent *
"A powerful blend of expletive-ridden dialogue and passages of beautiful prose- quite brilliant" * The Times *
"A fabulous piece of writing... One of the new millennium's most striking novels to date" * Time Out *
"The power of Griffiths's language is astounding, steeped in the wild forces of nature that have helped make Ianto what he is, by turns lyrically beautiful and tumultuously violent" * The Times *
