About the Book

Julius Winsome lives in a cabin in the hunting hearltand of the Maine woods, with only his books and his dog for company. That is until the morning he finds that his dog has been shot dead, and not by accident.

From this starting point, Gerard Donovan weaves an extraordinary tale that explores ideas of revenge and the threat of the wild, but one that is also a tender and heartbreaking paean to lost love. Narrated by the unforgettable voice of Julius himself - at once compassionate, vulnerable and threatening - it reads like a timeless, lost classic.
