Summary

Mr Tasker’s Gods was T. F. Powys’s first novel. Written during the First World War it wasn’t published until 1925. It is an unsettling work constantly showing the brutal reality behind the facades.

It is under constant attack with the services being described as ‘a sort of roll-call to enable authority to retain a proper hold upon the people’.

Faber Finds are reissuing six works by T. F. Powys: Mr Tasker’s Gods, Mark Only, Mockery Gap, Innocent Birds, Fables and God’s Eyes A-Twinkle.
