Betty Trask Award Best First Novel
On a street in a town in the North of England, ordinary people are going through the motions of their everyday existence - street cricket, barbecues, painting windows...A young man is in love with a neighbour who does not even know his name. An old couple make their way up to the nearby bus stop. But then a terrible event shatters the quiet of the early summer evening. That this remarkable and horrific event is only poignant to those who saw it, not even meriting a mention on the local news, means that those who witness it will be altered for ever.

Praise for this book

"A tremendous read. The whole book quivers, picks up its detail like a sensitive antenna, immensely fragile, yet in that unstoppable lyrical energy immensely tough." - Ali Smith
