I was delighted to find “Foe“, Iain Reid’s latest novel in my mailbox today!
His previous novel, “I’m thinking of ending things“, made a huge impact on me so I’m really looking forward to what he has in store for me next. Read my June 2016 –
5 star review of “I’m thinking of ending things“.
Thank-you Simon & Schuster Canada!
We don’t get visitors. Not out here. We never have.
Junior and Hen are a quiet married couple. They live a comfortable, solitary life on their farm, far from the city lights, but in close quarters with each other. One day, a stranger from the city arrives with surprising news: Junior has been randomly selected to travel far away from the farm…very far away. The most unusual part? Arrangements have already been made so that when he leaves, Hen won’t have a chance to miss him at all, because she won’t be left alone—not even for a moment. Hen will have company. Familiar company.
Foe examines the nature of domestic relationships, self-determination, and what it means to be (or not to be) a person. An eerily entrancing page-turner, it churns with unease and suspense from the first words to its shocking finale.
Sound fabulous, don’t you think? Available for pre-order now!
