Beast - Paul Kingsnorth (Paperback) 06-07-2017 Short-listed for Encore Award 2017.
What kind of man am I? I wonder what I think about that now that I have spent a year here, watching the layers peel off, stripping myself back . . . Beast plunges you into the world of Edward Buckmaster, a man living alone on a west-country moor. What he has left behind we don't quite know; what he faces is a battle with himself, the elements and with the animal he begins to see in the margins of his vision. A creature that will become an obsession . . .
