Aidan Cottrell-Boyce

What happens to a family when Dad contracts a debilitating condition? Exploring illness, familial love and apocalypse, a young married man suffers from a rare hormonal disorder that ages him erratically; at the same time, he becomes obsessed with the writings of a prophet, and encounters a radical movement confronting age-old economic struggle. A superb debut novel that confronts modern-day anxieties.

Aidan Cottrell-Boyce's short fiction has appeared in The White Review and Granta. Lee Rourke is a writer and literary critic whose books include the short story collection Everyday, the novels The Canal, Vulgar Things, and Glitch, and the poetry collections Varroa Destructor and Vantablack.
