“Cynan Jones is utterly brilliant. The writing in Cove is so delicate and cruel and insightful. I don’t understand why no statues have been erected in his honour yet.” —Eimear McBride, The Times Literary Supplement
Out at sea, in a sudden storm, a man is struck by lightning. When he wakes, injured and adrift on a kayak, his memory of who he is and how he came to be here is all but shattered. He will need to rely on his instincts, resilience, and imagination to get safely back to the woman he dimly senses is waiting for his return. This is an extraordinary, visceral portrait of a man locked in a struggle with the forces of nature.
