Hild by Nicola Griffith

Staff Pick

Griffith was the first artist to be awarded US residency, and when she turned her focus from lesbian fiction to a historical epic based on a 7th century British noblewoman, the initial surprise moved rapidly to delight and then awe. Comprising what might be called The Hild Sequence, HIld and Menewood are written in an immersive style that renders every descriptor palpable, reflecting Griffith's fastidious research into the era's overlooked queer histories and her efforts to replicate the daily lives of 7th century British peoples. Crack open the resplendent Hild and marvel at a time so different from our own, yet one full of familiar hopes, concerns, joys, loves, and dreams.
