Description - Landed by Tim Pears

Owen Wood is struggling to come to terms with an increasingly desperate situation- suffering from unimaginable phantom limb pain after a freak accident leaves him with his good hand amputated; estranged from his two young children after his marriage fails to survive the trauma of the accident; and unable to pursue his passion and livelihood as a gardener. Infused with nostalgia for one rich, enchanting childhood summer spent with his grandparents in rural Wales, Owen resolves to reconnect with both his past and the natural world. Perfectly poised between the hope of redemption and the threat of irrevocable tragedy, Landed is Tim Pears' most assured and beguiling novel to date.
