Clay, Paperback / softback Book


Eight-year-old TC skips school to explore the city's overgrown, forgotten corners.

Sophia, seventy-eight, watches with concern as he slips past her window, through the little park she loves.

She's writing to her granddaughter, Daisy, whose privileged upbringing means she exists in a different world from TC - though the two children live less than a mile apart. Jozef spends his days doing house clearances, his nights working in a takeaway.

He can't forget the farm he left behind in Poland, its woods and fields still a part of him, although he is a thousand miles away.

When he meets TC he finds a kindred spirit: both lonely, both looking for something, both lost.
