Benjamin Myers

Our Curators said...

From the very first page you can feel the beating heart of this novel. It’s tender, wry – and we as the reader stand shoulder to shoulder with Calvert and Redbone as they chew the fat on their nightly excursions. The way the author moves through the land and nature along with his characters is completely compelling. It’s a gorgeous book – quite simply everything you’d expect from Myers’ writing.

What the Critics are Saying

'What a radical thing, these days, to have written a book so full of warmth and kindness... Gorgeous'

Max Porter

'This quiet, lyrical novel confirms a powerful new voice'

The Times

'It's a poignant story, and Myers' descriptions of the countryside are wonderful'

Mail on Sunday

'One of the most interesting, restless writers of his generation... Unfurling at the unhurried pace of a fern, it's an evocatively lyrical paean to the countryside - deeply felt and closely observed'

Daily Mail

'A draft of cool, clear water, it feels like a cleansing book... He's such a good and brave writer... there's a lot of heart in this book... I was comparing it to some Ted Hughes poetry and it's so much more hopeful than that... there's light in this landscape... A very original writer and has pushed the form in all kinds of ways'
