Sara Baume’s Spill Simmer Falter Wither is a different kind of love story. A misfit man finds a misfit dog; spanning the four seasons echoed in the title, their relationship grows and intensifies, until a savage act forces them to abandon the precarious life they’d established and take to the road. Spill Simmer has been longlisted for the Guardian First Book Award and the Costa First Novel Award – read an extract here.
