Product description

Review

'West has all the stark power and immediacy of a folk-tale or a legend. It is also structured with great artistry, a beguiling sense of form and pace, and a depth in the way the characters are created, making clear that Carys Davies is a writer of immense talent'-- Colm Tóibín, author of Brooklyn


'West is a journey and a wonder. A story concerned with value and language, love and absence, life and death. A debut of real distinction' -- Bernard MacLaverty, author of Midwinter Break


'Wonderful'-- --Sarah Jessica Parker, Girlboss



'Slender, stark and utterly mesmerising...'-- Mail on Sunday


'Short, incredible, violent, uplifting and empowering - how Davies manages to create such an enduring story in 150 pages is a mystery, but she nails it.'-- --Stylist



'Exquisite, continent, utterly vivid, this short novel will live on in your imagination long after you read the last page'-- --Claire Messud, author of The Burning Girl
