Perilously ill, Jasper Scriven spends his days roaming the wards of a derelict psychiatric hospital. Meanwhile his daughter Cleo is watched by Roland, a hulking, silent figure. These solitary characters are connected by an event that defies understanding, even as it continues to define them. In this brilliantly imagined and disturbing novel, James Scudamore explores the fallibility of memory and notions of madness.
