Bluemoose Books publishes Ben’s fourth novel BEASTINGS this Thursday 3rd July 2014.
A girl and a baby. A priest and a poacher. A savage pursuit through the landscape of a changing rural England. Like an American Southern Gothic tale set against the violent beauty of Northern England, BEASTINGS is a sparse and poetic novel about morality, motherhood and corruption.
‘Myer’s prose is taut, confident, professionally polished but at the same time maintaining a sense of rustic and unrefined authenticity, that which is truly hewn.’ SARAH HALL
