  • In the Garden of the Fugitives

    Ceridwen Dovey

    Product Code: BWHEX
    Paperback
    A brilliant young woman and an older, more powerful man in a deeply subtle tale of slow-burning obsession and retribution A thrilling psychological examination of the #MeToo phenomenon for fans of Patricia Highsmith and Rachel Cusk Vita has spent twenty years trying to forget Royce: a ghost from her university days, an older man who funded her scholarship and expected her friendship in payment. But when he emails her out of the blue, determined to excavate the past, she cannot resist replying. Entering into a back and forth of memory and confession, she slowly learns more about what Royce wanted from her all those years ago, and how it related to another young woman, one she never met: the beautiful, now-dead, Kitty. And in this conversation, Royce is not the only one carrying secrets. Vita too has things she needs to confess... Profoundly addictive and unsettling, In the Garden of the Fugitives examines the complex power structures between men and women, between the powerful and the voiceless. Ceridwen Dovey takes us deep into the heart of a dangerous game, where there are always two sides to every story.

  • Only the Animals

    Ceridwen Dovey

    Product Code: AOMNE
    Paperback
    "Perhaps only the animals can tell us what it is to be human. The souls of ten animals caught up in human conflicts over the last century tell their astonishing stories of life and death. In a trench on the Western Front a cat recalls her owner Colette's theatrical antics in Paris. In Nazi Germany a dog seeks enlightenment. A Russian tortoise once owned by the Tolstoys drifts in space during the Cold War. In the siege of Sarajevo a bear starving to death tells a fairytale. And a dolphin sent to Iraq by the US Navy writes a letter to Sylvia Plath. Exquisitely written, playful and poignant, Only the Animals is a remarkable literary achievement by this bright young writer. An animal's-eye view of humans at our brutal, violent worst and our creative, imaginative best, it asks us to find our way back to empathy not only for animals, but for other people, and to believe again in the redemptive power of reading and writing fiction."
