Author: Gerard Woodward
Publisher: Chatto and Windus

An unforgettable first novel revels in nostalgia for post-war England.

Aldous Jones flew over his bicycle handlebars in 1955, landing next to Farmer Evan’s field. Since that day, he’s taken his family camping at the Evan’s Welsh farm each summer. As the years pass the family idyll starts to disintegrate, and summers at the farm are drenched in memory. An evocative, funny English novel, with dark, mournful undercurrents.
