Description

A collection of short stories evoking the vast skies and silts of the Lincolnshire fens. A man builds a tree house by a river, in anticipation of the coming flood. A sugar-beet crashes through a young woman’s windscreen. A boy sets fire to a barn. A pair of itinerant labourers sit by a lake, talking about shovels and sex, while fighter-planes fly low overhead and prepare for war. These aren’t the sort of things you imagine happening to someone like you. But sometimes they do. 272pp
