In Search of Solace, Paperback Book

In Search of Solace Paperback


LONGLISTED FOR THE FOLIO PRIZE 2015 AND THE GREEN CARNATION PRIZE 2014Jacob Little is in trouble - existential trouble.

Over ten years, he has tried out such a range of identities that he has lost all sense of who he is.

Convinced that only his ex-lover Solace can help, Jacob sets off for her Scottish hometown, only to get caught up in the lives of four people with their own issues: his self-deluding landlady, a teenager looking for a grand romance, an old watchmaker obsessed with time and a young girl who believes she's a boy.

Each sees Jacob in a different light. For each, he is a catalyst. But where does that leave him? Or, dear reader, you?
