"Jones's sense of place is acute, and his passion for the landscape-for its colors, its creatures, its textures, its scents-is absolutely magnetic."--Sarah Waters "A dark, tense, and vital short novel. Profound, powerful, and utterly absorbing."-The Guardian" It is a book about the essentials: life and death, cruelty and compassion. It is a book that will get in your bones, and haunt you."-Daily Telegraph" Cynan Jones's fourth novel, The Dig, is an extraordinarily powerful work-not in spite of its brevity but because of it. In its marriage of profound lyricism and feeling for place, deep human compassion and unflinching savagery, this brief and beautiful novel is utterly unique."-Financial TimesBuilt of the interlocking fates of a badger-baiter and a farmer struggling through lambing season, The Dig unfolds in a stark rural setting where man, animal, and land are at loggerheads. There is no bucolic pastoral here: this is pure, pared-down rural realism, crackling with compressed energy, from a writer of uncommon gifts. Cynan Jones was born near Aberaeron, Wales, in 1975. He is the author of three novels, The Long Dry (winner of a Betty Trask Award, 2007), Everything I Found on the Beach (2011), and The Dig (2014), winner of the Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize. He is also the author of Bird, Blood, Snow (2012), the retelling of a medieval Welsh myth. The Dig is his first novel published in the United States"--

"Out at sea, in a sudden storm, a man is struck by lightning. When he wakes, injured and adrift on a kayak, his memory of who he is and how he came to be here is all but shattered. He will need to rely on his instincts, resilience, and imagination to get safely back to the woman he dimly senses is waiting for his return. This is an extraordinary, visceral portrait of a man locked in a struggle with the forces of nature"--Page [4] of cover

Die Natur hat ihre eigenen Gesetze, und das oberste ist das des Kampfes. Daniel bewirtschaftet in einem abgelegenen walisischen Landstrich eine kleine Schafsfarm, als er bei einem tragischen Unfall seine Frau verliert. Mit letzter Kraft hält er sich und den Betrieb aufrecht, gehalten von den Ritualen des rauen Landlebens und verfolgt von den Erinnerungen an flüchtige Momente des Glücks. Zur gleichen Zeit hinterlässt ein brutaler Hundezüchter in der Gegend seine Spuren. Er jagt illegal Dachse und wirft sie in Wettkämpfen abgerichteten Terriern vor. Doch so wie Daniel die Vergangenheit nicht loslässt, ist auch er ein Verfolgter, die Polizei hat bereits seine Witterung aufgenommen. Als er für eine Jagd ausgerechnet auf Daniels Land ausweicht, überschreitet er endgültig jene unsichtbare Grenze, hinter der es kein Zurück gibt. Daniel, der nichts mehr zu verlieren hat, stellt sich ihm entgegen ... Cynan Jones beschreibt die Rückzugsgefechte zweier aus der Zeit gefallener Archetypen als eine Eskalation in albtraumhafter Zeitlupe. In einer glasklaren, suggestiven Sprache gelingt ihm ein kleines Meisterwerk über den ewigen Kreislauf aus Jagen und Gejagtwerden. Und darüber, dass jeder Mensch irgendwann an einen Punkt gerät, an dem alle Fluchtwege abgeschnitten sind und nichts mehr bleibt als die Konfrontation. Cynan Jones wurde 1975 in Wales geboren. Er ist Autor von vier Romanen und zahlreichen Erzählungen, die in Zeitschriften wie "Granta Magazine" oder der "New Welsh Review" veröffentlicht wurden. Für seinen Debütroman wurde er 2007 mit dem Betty Trask Award ausgezeichnet, für "Graben" erhielt er 2014 den Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize. Cynan Jones lebt in Aberarth, einem kleinen Dorf an der walisischen Küste
