'Powerful' JOANNA GLEN
'Beautiful' KATE SAWYER
'A triumph' JENNIE GODFREY

The eagerly awaited new novel from Bobby Palmer, author of the critically acclaimed debut Isaac and the Egg.

If you stood before sunrise in this wild old place, looking through the trees into the garden, here's what you'd see:

A father and son, a fox standing between them.

Jack, home for the first time in years, still determined to be the opposite of his father.

Gerry, who would rather talk to animals than the angry man back under his roof.

Everything that follows is because of the fox, and because Jack's mother is missing. It spans generations of big dreams and lost time, unexpected connections and things falling apart, great wide worlds and the moments that define us.

If you met them in the small hours, you'd begin to piece together their story.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A powerful story of losing ourselves and each other - and how the natural world can find us and put us back together again - Joanna Glen

I devoured this in forty-eight hours, it being about my very favourite reading topic: dysfunctional families and the many ways in which they can both fracture and heal. Its connection to the natural world makes this extra-special and almost poetic. A triumph - Jennie Godfrey

Lyrical and evocative, Small Hours is a book like no other, a beautiful testament to the importance of family and what it's truly like to be human - Awais Khan

“Everything about this book, from the mundane to the fantastical, holds this power that really gets to you as you read it.”

I got on the hype train for Bobby's first book, Isaac and the Egg. It wasn't like anything I had read before and at times, just outrageously peculiar. But there was no denying his ability to write, and his... More
