Foe

Author: Iain Reid Format: Paperback Release Date: 04/09/2018

A taut, philosophical, hauntingpuzzle of a novel by the acclaimed author of I'm Thinking of Ending Things We don't get visitors. Not out here. We never have. Junior and Henrietta live a quiet, solitary life on their farm, far from the city lights, but in close quarters with each other. They raise chickens and they work at the local feed mill. One day, a stranger from the city arrives at their door with alarming news: Junior has been randomly selected to travel far away from the farm... to settle somewhere very far away. The most unusual part? Arrangements have already been made so that when he leaves, Henrietta won't have a chance to miss him, because she won't be left alone - not even for a moment. Henrietta will have company. Familiar company. Told in Reid's sharp and evocative style, 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, Foechurns with unease and suspense from the first words to its shocking finale. `I couldn't put it down. It infected my dreams. A creepy and brilliant book' Zoe Whittall, author of The Best Kind of People `From the opening page, you'll have an uneasy feeling as you settle into Iain Reid's brilliant new novel.. A masterful and breathtakingly unique read. I can't stop thinking about it ` Amy Stuart, author of Still Mine and Still Water `Spare, consuming, unforgettable. Foe is a dark arrow from a truly original mind. Page by eerie page, Iain Reid pulls the unknown world out from under you, and leaves you trapped inside a marriage's most haunting question: can I be replaced? This is a book that seeps into your bloodstream - and crowns Iain Reid the king of deadpan, philosophical horror' Claudia Dey, author of Heartbreaker
