About this product
- Description<b>A debut vel already praised as unbearably poignant and beautifully told (Eimear McBride) this captivating story follows -- over the course of four seasons -- a misfit man who adopts a misfit dog.</b> It is springtime, and two outcasts -- a man igred, even shunned by his village, and the one-eyed dog he takes into his quiet, tightly shuttered life -- find each other, by accident or fate, and forge an unlikely connection. As their friendship grows, their small, seaside town suddenly takes te of them, falsely perceiving menace where there is only mishap; the unlikely duo must take to the road. Gorgeously written in poetic and mesmerizing prose, S<i>pill Simmer Falter Wither</i> has already garnered wild support in its native Ireland, where the <i>Irish Times </i>pointed to Baume's astonishing power with language and praised it as a vel bursting with brio, braggadocio and bite. It is also a moving depiction of how -- over the four seasons echoed in the title -- a relationship between fellow damaged creatures can bring them both comfort. One of those rare stories that utterly, completely imagines its way into a life most of us would never see, it transforms us t only in our understanding of the world, but also of ourselves.
