This is an advance order for a hardback book that will be published in August 2017.
You love books and you want to go above and beyond being ‘just’ a reader! Well, this is where you need to be. You want to really make a dent in that crowdfunding goal. You want to help new authors. You want to get new literature on the shelves!
How will we ever repay you?
Nathan Connolly, our Editor, will give you five book recommendations as a token of our gratitude. They can be based on whatever you want: the book you ordered, your favourite book, the general direction of the conversation, or just whatever you feel like in the moment. Nathan of course has the best taste in all things, not just books. If you want, he can recommend you five anything: films, restaurants, long drives, service stations. I recognise this and I’m not even Nathan.
Samhain is a young, angry and bewildered squatter living in an abandoned hotel in the North of England. One day he receives a message: his father – a man he never knew – was an undercover policeman infiltrating the Green movement of the 80s. What’s more, he finds out that he too is now a father.
As Sam leaves for Europe, he pursues freedom and flees from his responsibilities. Responsibility, however, is hard to escape. Guest is a story of disillusionment, protest and, eventually, redemption.
