A FOYLES Fiction Book of the Year 2016 Shortlisted for The Edge Hill Short Story Prize 2017 Longlisted for The Sunday Times EFG Short Story Award 2017 The Fen is a liminal land. Real people live their lives here. They wrestle with sex and desire, with everyday routine. But the wild is always close at hand, ready to erupt. This is a place where animals and people commingle and fuse, where curious metamorphoses take place, where myth and dark magic still linger. So here a teenager may starve herself into the shape of an eel. A house might fall in love with a girl. A woman might give birth to a, well, what?

Staff Choice

Fen recalls the sodden landscape of Eastern England but this is a place wholly familiar while also startlingly different. A debut short story collection that has everything; an assured voice, a wondrous setting and a grasp on that ferocious and elusive thing – youth.
