Winner of the Edinburgh International Book Festival's First Book Award.
Imagine an island, a place separated from the mainland by choppy seas. A place of myths and faith, where a headless horseman is said to stalk the woods but where the kirk is always full.
Imagine a community which held its own against Darwin but which can't hold on to its own.
Prepare to meet a pioneering female travel writer, two fatherless boys, and a man who, quite simply, fell from the sky. And, at the centre of it all, the figure who links the past to the present - the irrepressible, unforgettable former Sergeant Punch.
Ivor Punch will not be taking his secrets to the grave. He's going to share them: with a departed relative, with President Obama, and especially with you.
Hilarious and heartfelt, rowdy and true, The Letters of Ivor Punch is a novel about fathers and sons, secrets and lies, and how sometimes you have to leave home to know what home is.
