Simon Vance has made of this dark, lyrical Kafkaesque novel an utterly riveting listening experience. The narrator, Buckmaster, is living alone on a moor in the west of England. It's hard to tell if we're in the past or future; he is untethered, frightened by ferocious weather, and by creatures in the dark that seem to be stalking him. You can't tell if he's isolated because he's deranged, or an outlaw, or because the world order has gone mad or feral, but whatever the case, he is alone and something awful is after him. Or not. For Vance to become that man as he does, in full sympathy, and make the listener see and hear and feel with Buckmaster, is devastating work. A superb production. B.G.
