The Water Cure : LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2018 Hardback

Description

Once upon a time, damaged women came here to be cured.

We took them in, fed them glasses of our clean, good water, let them scream at the waves till their lips split like ripe fruit.

Now no one is left but my sisters and me. King died a year ago, quite suddenly. Mother has vanished, no one knows where. And the safe compound they built around us, far away from the toxic world, has finally been breached. Three men arrived last week, washed up by the sea, their gazes hungry and insistent.

We remember now what our father taught us. 'If the men come to you, show yourself some mercy. Don't stick around and wait for them to put you out of your misery.'
