Reprint. Author's First Novel. Uncommon. Winner of the 1987 Guardian Fiction Prize. The Somerset Levels, where fields bleed water and the land meets the sky in a damp blur, ‘a world hidden from most people by the way they travel’, are home to Billy. By trade he is a basket maker, by inclination an innocent and regretful thinker. His days are spent with a mother who cannot help shouting, chickens who cannot help dying, a father who cannot help getting into trouble, and Dick, a childhood friend grown to adolescence but not maturity.
