Skin




The second book from the up-and-coming folk-singer-cum-novelist (and collaborator with Robert Macfarlane) who is shortlisted for a major national writing prize – to be announced in mid-September.

Skin, the follow-up to Swansong, begins in 1985 with the disappearance of 8-year-old Matty’s father. His vanishing is the mystery and engine of the novel, which moves to the west coast of Ireland in 1999, where the grown-up Matty goes, door to door, convinced he is still alive. This is a novel of loss and recovery, gender-fluidity and wild-swimming by a rising star.
