Lancaster Writing Programme student Catriona Child publishes debut novel: Trackman

Trackman

Date: 14 September 2012

Catriona Child gained a Distinction in the Lancaster University Distance Learning MA in Creative Writing in 2010. Her portfolio contained the opening chapters ofTrackman,a novel which has now been published by Luath Press (February 2012). It tells the story of a young man who is given an old MP3 player with mysterious powers, a device that seems to know "what song to play to you and exactly when you need to hear it" (Amazon)

A reviewer in The Herald writes that "In her debut novel, Catriona Child has all the makings of a cult hit"; Rowena McIntosh describes the novel as a "tale of loss and isolation... a powerful piece of contemporary Scottish literature that expertly blends fantastical subject matter with a profound look at the destructive effects of bereavement."
