John Crow's Devil
In the village of Gibbeah - where certain women fly and certain men protect secrets with their lives - magic coexists with religion and good and evil are never as they seem. There, a battle is fought between two men of God. This stunning debut novel is about religious mania, redemption, sexual obsession and the eternal struggle inside us all between the righteous and the wicked. John Crow's Devil is the kind of stylistically mature first novel that often comes at the beginning of an enduring career.' - Colin Channer'
