Box Hill by Adam Mars-Jones

Box Hill by Adam Mars-Jones

£9.99Price

On the Sunday of his eighteenth birthday, in 1975, Colin takes a walk on Box Hill, a biker hang-out. There he accidentally trips over Ray, a biker napping under a tree – and that’s where it all starts. This transgressive, darkly affecting love story between men, winner of the 2019 Fitzcarraldo Editions Novel Prize, is a stunning novel of desire and domination by one of Britain’s most accomplished writers.

‘Adam Mars-Jones has never needed to write at great length to convince readers of his talent. ... Mars-Jones’s latest work is a sliver of a novel that provides ample evidence of his prowess. ... Box Hill is not a novel for the prudish, but it is a masterclass in authorial control. ... Despite its diminutive length, it is rich with detail and complexity, and has plenty to demonstrate Mars-Jones’s well-deserved place on any list of our best.’ — Alex Nurnberg, Sunday Times

 

‘The biggest small book of the year.’ — Guardian

 

‘An exquisitely discomfiting tale of a submissive same-sex relationship ... perfectly realised.’  — Anthony Cummins, Observer
