After he abandoned his family after a single devastating incident, Adam has spent years on the nomadic fringes of British society, in and out of transitory jobs and relationships, adrift from his family and past. When out-of-the-blue his younger brother reaches out to him, there is an ultimatum attached: come home now, or never come home again.
Adam embarks on a journey home that is at once tortured and exhilarating, a panoramic tour through the broken and beautiful margins of Britain. As eruptions from his secret past begin to emerge, Adam struggles to break free from an exile that must now end before it swallows him for good.
★★★★ "A haunting and masterly portrait of the bleeding edges of so-called Broken Britain." - Kevin Maher, The Times
