'A beautiful piece of work ... it leaves the reader moved and subtly changed, as if she had become part of the story' Hilary Mantel


The highly anticipated new novel from the Costa-award winning, three-times Booker-longlisted author of Reservoir 13.



When an Antarctic research expedition goes wrong, the consequences are far-reaching - for the men involved and for their families back home.

Robert "Doc" Wright, a veteran of Antarctic field work, holds the clues to what happened, but he is no longer able to communicate them. While Anna, his wife, navigates the sharp contours of her new life as a carer, Robert is forced to learn a whole new way to be in the world.

Award-winning novelist Jon McGregor returns with a stunning novel that mesmerizingly and tenderly unpicks the notion of heroism and explores the indomitable human impulse to tell our stories - even when words fail us. A meditation on the line between sacrifice and selfishness this is a story of the undervalued, unrecognised courage it can take just to get through the day.
