Its climactic event is a death in the family that Jones attenuates to heartbreaking length. Yet for all that, the book has a poetic, elemental feel that’s enlivening even when the mood is at its lowest ebb.

Synopsis

On a long, hot day, Gareth searches for a missing pregnant cow. A dog must be put down, there are ducks to go in the pond, there are children, and there is Kate, his wife, who may be an uncrossable distance from him. Jones's rural Wales is alive with the necessities of our own animal instincts and most human longing.
