In the Orchard, the Swallows by Peter Hobbs: review
The Daily Telegraph. Catch it here. I saw Peter speak several thousand years ago, when I began my literary career at the Folkestone Literary Festival, about his first novel, The Short Day Dying, which I admired greatly; I also reviewed his short story collection, I Could Ride All Day on My Cool Blue Train for The Tablet. This is a powerful and beautiful novella.
