Tom Bullough and Cynan Jones
Thursday 27th April at 7pm, Rossiter Books, Ross-on-Wye – Ticket £3
Two unique Welsh voices, Tom Bullough and Cynan Jones, come together to read from and discuss the latest books.
The moving and engrossing story of the Hamer family and their home, the Funnon Farm, deep in the hills of the Welsh borders.
From the ancient silence in the hills to the encroaching roar of modernity, spanning seventy years, Addlands tells of human and animal; it speaks of the land and lets the land speak for itself. It is as vast and complex as a symphony but as pure and moving as a solo voice in an empty church.
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.
