Description

Jon McGregor, the award-winning author of If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things, delivers in Lean Fall Stand an engrossing exploration of an Antarctic researcher brought low by tragedy and desperate to communicate with the outside world.

When an Antarctic research expedition goes wrong, the consequences are far-reaching – for the men involved and for their families back home. Robert ‘Doc’ Wright holds the clues to what happened, but he is no longer able to communicate them. While Anna, his wife, navigates the sharp contours of her new life as a carer, Robert is forced to learn a whole new way to be in the world.

‘Lean Fall Stand is a beautiful piece of work and should win a roomful of prizes. Jon McGregor writes plainly and exactly, like a poet, and the precision of his writing makes every heartbeat register. The quality of his attention is a flicker of light around the fragile human condition, and it leaves the reader moved and subtly changed, as if she had become part of the story.’ Hilary Mantel

‘A genuinely fascinating book and a troubling, riveting reading experience. A bold and masterful investigation into the weather system of the human mind.’ Max Porter

‘A spectacular book . . . It does what Jon McGregor does so well: examine the widening ripples of a single event. I read it again, as soon as I’d finished.’ Maggie O’Farrell
