Former farmhand Jake, now a widower in his seventies, goes on the run in the Yorkshire Dales after committing a crime. As he travels the countryside trying to avoid capture, we learn of the events of his past: the wife he loved and lost, their child that he knows cannot be his, and the deep-seated need for revenge that manifests itself in a moment of violence. The Mating Habits of Stags reveals afresh the lyrical prose and mastery of character that distinguish Ray Robinson's fiction. An early version of the story was released in 2016 as the short film Edith, starring Peter Mullan and Michelle Fairley, which was Bafta-longlisted for Best British Short Film.

“A beautiful and hugely affecting read”

I genuinely do not know how I am going to review this book, it seems as pointless and ridiculous as trying to catch and pin a butterfly to a board for the gaze of others.

“A 'tour de force' in descriptive writing”

'Jake and Edith followed the sheep-trods up the side of the fell, moving through last year's bracken frost-scorched a deep rust colour.  They paused to catch their breaths, taking swigs from their water... More
