Summary

The stunning new novel from the prize-winning author of The Wake.

‘Come to a place like this . . . and you will understand soon enough that this world is a great animal, alive and breathing.’

Beast plunges you into the world of Edward Buckmaster, a man alone on a west-country moor. What he has left behind we don’t yet know; what he faces is an existential battle with himself, the elements, and something that he begins to see in the margins of his vision …

Beast is a vivid exploration of isolation, courage, and the search for truth. Shocking and exhilarating, it confirms Paul Kingsnorth as one of our most daring and rewarding contemporary writers.
