Haunting, distinctive, sophisticated and sensual, The Shape of a Forest moves evocatively from the historical to the contemporary: Genghis Kahn surveys his territory whilst Amelia Earhart disappears into myth. The Belvedere Apollo is dug up heralding the onset of The Renaissance as the Pendle witches are hung in Lancashire, and in tsunami-struck Japanese gardens and New York hotel rooms, lives are loosened like milk teeth. Shortlisted for the Dylan Thomas Award, the Roland Mathias Award and the Welsh Book of the Year Award, The Shape of a Forest is a powerful survey of life and of human experience that spans centuries and the continents.
