Beast

The stunning new novel from the prizewinning author of The Wake

Beast plunges you into the world of Edward Buckmaster, a man alone on an empty moor in the west of England. What he has left behind we don't yet know.

Editorial reviews (3 reviews)


Is Buckmaster a visionary or a sad lunatic? Is his story one of salvation, or an indictment of the false promise of heaven in the face of worldly unhappiness? And is “Beast,” like the “thing that walks,” something less exotic than at first it seems?

It is a deeply philosophical novel that reads like a journal, a stream-of-consciousness account of a man, Edward Buckmaster, and his search for…well...something.

“Beast” is a cautionary fable for everyone who might hope to evade our current historical impasse by sheer bad faith or by extremes of primitivism, self-seeking or abstraction. It leads readers away from optimism and realism alike, deeper into a new scrutiny of the stories by which we try to make our way.
