9780099461784: Field Study

Rachel Seiffert, author of The Dark Room, powerfully evokes our need for human connection in this brilliant and haunting group of stories. From the title piece, in which a young biologist conceals his discoveries at a polluted river from a local woman, to the family aided by an enemy in 'The Crossing', to the old man weighing his regrets in 'Francis John Jones, 1924 -' Seiffert's acclaimed, refined prose movingly captures the lives of her characters in their most essential, secret moments.

A Rocky Mountain News Best Book of the Year.

Review:

"A magnificent collection: striking, moving, and deeply thought-provoking" ( Financial Times)

"Seiffert is a writer of great delicacy and toughness...good story begetting good story after good story" ( Guardian)

"It is extraordinary to experience these fictions... Not even the achievement of The Dark Room, its maturity and courage, will quite prepare the reader for the subtle art at work throughout these stories" ( Irish Times)

"Vivid, just and heartfelt" ( Daily Telegraph)

"'The Crossing' has all the leanness of Hemingway's short fiction... In Seiffert's hands, the tale becomes a tense parable set at the dangerous intersection of trust, desperation and xenophobia" ( New York Times Book Review)

From the Publisher:

From the Booker-shortlisted author of The Dark Room, a remarkable collection of stories exploring themes of guilt, love and sacrifice with a haunting emotional precision.
