The Fell

by Sarah Moss

This is a beautiful, extraordinary book. Sarah Moss ' writing is so precise and moving. Her simple distillation of each characters ' thoughts, fears, worries and sorrows; the loneliness and soul searching of this past year, lays bare the human condition, each error and mistake approached with such humanity. Heartbreakingly brilliant.
