From an award-winning Scottish poet, an unforgettable novel about memory and radical forgiveness
Quinn is serving a life sentence for a crime he's convinced he hasn't committed. Surely the authorities have got it wrong, and when they find his childhood sweetheart, Andrea, his name will be cleared? His parole is drawing near when he receives a letter from Andrea's mother, who invites Quinn to share her home.
It soon becomes clear that what appears to be a genuine act of forgiveness is influenced by more complex motivations. As they navigate the thorny terrain of guilt, justice and mutual need that underpins their relationship, the story of Quinn's past is gradually revealed, setting in motion a final reckoning.
For fans of Max Porter's Grief Is the Thing with Feathers and David Diop's At Night All Blood Is Black, Quinn is a visceral and compelling exploration of an unravelling mind.
