The Long Dry

By Cynan Jones

Published Oct 2013

Winner of a Betty Trask Award 2007

Gareth wakes early to find a calving cow is missing and sets off across his farm to find her as the day breaks again to relentless summer sun. Written with clarity and power, Cynan Jones’ first remarkable book explores the paradox of emotional isolation suffered by those living close together, the conflicting demands of family and farm, and the disruption of old ways by the new.
