‘What is it about that bloody place? You, all of you What the hell is it about all of you? I let you under my skin That is what it is Like thousands of tiny pinpricks’
‘You were the strong one Is no one ever blaming you, You did what you had to do You did what was the right thing.’
On a remote island in the middle of the Atlantic secrets are buried. When the outside world comes calling, intent on manipulation for political and economic reasons, the islanders find their own world blown apart from the inside as well as beyond. ‘Further than the Furthest Thing’ is a beautifully drawn story evoking the sadness and beauty of a civilisation in crisis.
