The Quality of Light
On the edge of England, four amateur pilots feel their senses awakening. Marcus follows drunks, searching for clues in their speeches. Patrick drives on empty, finding new places when he runs out of fuel. Nicola gives up her old life in order to fly. And Katie, barely out of school, begins seeing things that shouldn t be possible. The Quality of Light is the story of four people who, despite living in near poverty in a vile coastal town, are led to beauty. With an urge to fly, and an ability to see more than other people can, they are drawn together. As a background to this, there is the harvesting of pain that others leave behind - an occult pastime that reflects the themes of the book. Visually stunning, tense and surreal, The Quality of Light is a love story set in a world of heightened realism. It emphatically fulfills the promise of Christopher Kenworthy s eerie debut, The Winter Inside.
