  • The Porpoise

  • ‘Just downright brilliant... a transcendent, transporting experience’ Observer

    A motherless girl grows up in isolated luxury, hidden from the world by her wealthy father. She believes their life together is normal – but as time passes, she has a growing sense that something between them is very wrong.

    She cannot escape, so she seeks solace in her books. Her favourite tales are those that conjure ancient worlds – of angry gods and heroic mortals, one of whom will some day come to her rescue.

    Soon, she will forget where the page ends and her mind begins.

    ‘A full-throttle blast of storytelling mastery’ Max Porter
