The original, unrevised text from the acclaimed first edition. 'And the crows - they still wing, still wheel, only closer now - closer now - closer to me. These sly corbies are birds of death. They've shadowed me all mah life' Outcast, mute, a lone twin cut from a drunk mother in a shack full of junk, Euchrid Eucrow of Ukulore inhabits a nightmarish Southern valley of preachers and prophets, incest and ignorance. When the God-fearing folk of the town declare a foundling child to be chosen by the almighty, Euchrid is disturbed. He sees her very differently, and his conviction, and increasing isolation and insanity, may have terrible consequences for them both . . . Compelling and astonishing in its baroque richness, Nick Cave's acclaimed first novel is a fantastic journey into a twisted world of Deep Southern Gothic tragedy. 'As if a Faulkner novel had been crossed with Whistle Down the Wind and then narrated by a stoned blues musician . . . extremely ambitious . . . heady.' Daily Telegraph
