"[A] lyrical novel about lives in a remarkable landscape."
Ray Robinson, an award-winning short-story writer, novelist and screenwriter, first won attention in 2006 with his debut novel, Electricity, which was shortlisted for both the James Tait Black Memorial Prize and the Authors’ Club First Novel Award. The film adaptation of Electricity, starring Agyness Deyn, will be released in 2014. Robinson’s other novels are The Man Without (2008) and Forgetting Zoë (2010). Forgetting Zoë was selected for the inaugural Fiction Uncovered promotion and was the Observer’s Thriller of the Month.
