    Picked this up and didn’t do much else for a day and a half until I’d finished it. Will be on my best of 2021 list for sure. Magically written. Two of my favourite writers, Ronan Hession and Heidi James had both recommended it on twitter (and have endorsed it on the cover) which led me to ordering it, and so glad I did. Heidi and Ronan are both right, it is an excellent novel. Set in a not too distant future UK, damaged by a pandemic, politics and climate change where food production has all moved overseas and the countryside has become deserted as people move to the city for work. This novel felt very relevant to a post-Brexit damaged Britain. The prose is superb and had me completely engrossed.
    And I shall never look at a cow again without trying to hear their chorus.
