‘This is a story of our life, it’s about how we died and learnt to survive, by taking messages for the dead. What do they call us? Medium. The Medium.’ 

To read The Medium is to be submerged in a stream of consciousness populated by uninvited voices from the underworld. Animated, urgent, and brutally propulsive, this cacophony of competing narratives begins to upset the boundary between the living and the dead. The Medium is an alchemical novel, shimmering with insight from the depths of a black lake. 

The Medium is published as part of Arrhythmia, a series curated for Book Works by Katrina Palmer.

Alice Walter is an artist, writer and medium – living and working in the UK. She has a BA in Fine Art, Film and Video from Central Saint Martins, UAL and a MFA from The Ruskin School of Art, Oxford University.
