Synopsis

When Cy Bellman, American settler and widowed father of Bess, reads in the newspaper that huge ancient bones have been discovered in a Kentucky swamp, he leaves his small Pennsylvania farm and young daughter to find out if the rumours are true: that the giant monsters are still alive, and roam the uncharted wilderness beyond the Mississippi River. West is the story of Bellman's journey and of Bess, waiting at home for her father to return. Written with compassionate tenderness and magical thinking, it explores the courage of conviction, the transformative power of grief, the desire for knowledge and the pull of home, from an exceptionally talented and original British writer. It is a radiant and timeless epic-in-miniature, an eerie, electric monument to possibility.

Wonderfully meandering novel, about a man trying to satisfy the dull ache of inquisition that drives him west and away from his small daughter. A superb book. Told in a sparse but attentive voice, this short novel is full of life. Bringing to life a lost America, capturing its open spaces and climates in an intimate detail that perfectly captures its history and people.
