A profoundly moving novella about the meaning of love, loss and nature. Spare, harsh but at the same time lyrical and strong…a beautiful book.
Picked by David
Deep in rural Wales, a farmer is struggling through lambing season when he becomes aware that his land is being stalked by a badger-baiter who brings with him the stark threat of violence. Built of the interlocking fates of these two solitary men, this is a searing story of isolation and loss, from a writer of uncommon gifts.
