ASH BEFORE OAK is a novel in the form of a fictional journal written by a solitary man on a secluded Somerset estate. Ostensibly a nature diary, chronicling the narrator's interest in the local flora and fauna and the passing of the seasons, ASH BEFORE OAK is also the story of a breakdown told slantwise, and of the narrator's subsequent recovery through his reengagement with the world around him.
Written in prose that is as
precise as it is beautiful, winner of the 2018 Fitzcarraldo Editions
Novel Prize, Jeremy Cooper's first novel in over a decade is a stunning
investigation of the fragility, beauty and strangeness of life.
