Cove

by Cynan Jones
Paperback
Publication Date: 24/01/2018
RRP  $25.75 $25.50

From the Jerwood-award winning author of The Dig, here is a short, sharp punch of a book about a man and a boat in deep, uncertain waters.

Out at sea, in a sudden storm, a man is struck by lightning. When he wakes, injured and adrift on a kayak, his memory of who he is and how he came to be there is all but shattered. Now he must pit himself against the pain and rely on his instincts to get back to shore, and to the woman he dimly senses waiting for his return.

With its taut narrative and its wincingly visceral portrait of a man locked in an uneven struggle with the forces of nature, this is a powerful new work from one of the most distinctive voices in British fiction.

‘Cynan Jones is utterly brilliant. The writing is so delicate and cruel and insightful. I don’t understand why no statues have been erected in his honour yet’ - Eimear McBride, TLS

‘To read Cove is to take a masterclass in taking out everything but the essentials. This is writing stripped back to the bone, and storytelling that gets under the skin. Powerful, terrifying, brilliantly done’ - Jon McGregor
