General Fiction

Ben Jewell has hit breaking point. His 10-year-old son, Jonah, has never spoken. So when Ben and Jonah are forced to move in with Ben’s elderly father, three generations of men – one who can’t talk; two who won’t – are thrown together. As Ben battles single fatherhood, a string of well-meaning social workers and his own demons, he learns some difficult home truths. Jonah, blissful in his innocence, becomes the prism through which all the complicated strands of personal identity, family history and misunderstanding are finally untangled.


What the critics say:

‘A darker, sadder version of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, but just as moving’ – The Observer
