From one of the most innovative and vital writers of his generation, an extraordinary collection of stories that showcases his gifts, and his range, as never before. The follow-up to his debut novel, The Flame Alphabet, these piercing, brilliantly observed investigations into human vulnerability and failure, it is often the most absurd and alien predicaments that capture the deepest truths. Surreal and tender, terrifying and life-affirming, Leaving the Sea is the work of an utterly unique writer at the height of his powers.
