Morvern Callar by Alan Warner

The novel follows the story of Morvern Callar, a young woman living in a small Scottish port town, who wakes up one Christmas morning to find her boyfriend has committed suicide. Instead of reporting his death, she decides to erase all evidence of it, appropriates his unpublished novel as her own, and uses his money to go on a holiday in Spain. The book explores themes of grief, identity, and personal transformation, as Morvern navigates her way through life with a detached and indifferent attitude.
