Waterstones Says

A beautiful, uncategorisable and truly original modern-day fable about loss, hope and the magic of everyday life, Isaac and the Egg tells the story of a broken man's transformative journey into the woods.

A young man walks into the woods on the worst morning of his life and finds something there that will change everything.

It's a tale that might seem familiar. But how it speaks to you will depend on how you've lived until now.

Sometimes, to get out of the woods, you have to go into them. Isaac and the Egg is one of the most hopeful, honest and wildly imaginative novels you will ever read.

“Absolutely gorgeous, wacky, and heartbreaking all in one.”

I devoured this book over 2 days, if I hadn’t been so tired the first day and kept falling asleep I would have read it in one sitting. But finishing the last 50% while I was on the exercise bike, was not the best... More

“Isaac and the Egg”

I am not sure what to say about this book. It is heart rendering for the most part and a book that someone who has lost someone might find some solace in – we all get there in the end with our grief. The story... More
