Description
(A New York Times Notable Book of 2014, and a Best Book of the Year for NPR and London's Times and Guardian newspapers) Clod is an Iremonger, living in the Heaps, a vast sea of lost and discarded items collected from all over London; at its center is Heap House, a warren of reclaimed houses, castles, homes, and mysteries. The Iremongers are a mean and cruel family, robust and hardworking, and each of them protects the identifying object given him at birth. But Clod has an illness: he can hear the objects whispering, and they are increasingly showing strange signs of life. This first installment of the Iremonger Trilogy introduces readers 12 and up to a dark, gloriously imagined world, illustrated with Edward Carey's rather dour family portraits, appearing at the chapter headings.

"How do I even begin to talk about this exceptional, astonishing book? Reading Heap House I was reminded of Edward Gorey, Lemony Snicket, and Roald Dahl; it's a grimy world with a sepia glow, a Victoriana of malicious clutter. It's an intelligent, thoughtful, compassionate book. It's also gorgeously written. Heap House is, its heart of trash notwithstanding, an absolute treasure."—NPR
