'A troubling, hammering and glorious novel' DAVID MITCHELL On the edge of the Antarctic Circle, in the years after World War One, a steamship approaches a desolate island.
On board is a young man on his way to assume the post of weather observer, to live in solitude for a year at the end of the earth.
But on shore he finds no trace of the man whom he has been sent to replace, just a deranged castaway who has witnessed a horror he refuses to name.
The rest is woods, a deserted cabin, rocks, silence and the surrounding sea.
Then night begins to fall . . .
