Willard, his mother and his girlfriend Nyla have spent their entire lives in an endless journey where daily survival is dictated by the ultimate imperative: obey the rules, or you will lose your place in the Line.
Everything changes the day Willard’s mother dies and he finds a strange book hidden among her few belongings... In its Beckettian sparseness, Line pushes the boundaries of speculative, high-concept fiction. Deeply moving, it also touches on many of the pressing issues of our turbulent world: migration and the refugee crisis, big data and the erosion of democracy, climate change, colonialism,
economic exploitation, social conformity and religious fanaticism.
A stunning debut from a major new voice in Irish literature.
