The Smoke, Paperback / softback Book

The Smoke Paperback / softback


Simon Ings' The Smoke is about love, loss and loneliness in an incomprehensible world.

Humanity has been split into three different species.

Mutual incomprehension has fractured the globe. As humans race to be the first of their kind to reach the stars, another Great War looms.

For you that means returning to Yorkshire and the town of your birth, where factories churn out the parts for gigantic spaceships.

You're done with the pretentions of the capital and its unfathomable architecture.

You're done with Georgy Chernoy and his questionable defeat of death.

You're done with his daughter, Fel, and losing all the time.

You're done with love. But soon enough you will find yourself in the Smoke again, drawn back to the life you thought you'd left behind. You're done with love. But love's not done with you.
