"a gripping contemporary story... brilliantly absorbs the magical elements of the original - The Guardian
Sheers makes his 20th-century setting sing but holds on to the otherworldliness of his source material... A spellbinding fable about male self-destructiveness and the effects of war on those who return home. --The Financial Times
About the Author
Owen Sheers was born in 1974, spent a portion of his childhood abroad, then returned to live on a farm in Abergavenny when he was nine. Educated at Oxford, with an MA in Creative Writing from the UEA writing programme, he has worked in television in London and Wales. He hit the limelight in 2000 when for The Times of January 1st, 2000, David Bailey photographed the foremost practitioners in the arts and sciences together with their choice of the person they expected to carry the discipline forward: Poet Laureate Andrew Motion selected Owen Sheers as the poet to watch. His first collection, The Blue Book, was shortlisted for the Forward Poetry Prize Best First Collection and ACW Book of the Year 2001. Skirrid Hill, his second collection, won a Somerset Maugham Prize in 2006 and was longlisted for Welsh Book of the Year. Owen Sheers was recently appointed as the first-ever artist in residence for the Welsh Rugby Union.
