Elegant, gently sinister and psychologically complex, After Me Comes the Flood is the haunting debut novel from Sarah Perry.

One hot summer’s day, John Cole decides to leave his life behind. He shuts up the bookshop no one ever comes to and drives out of London. When his car breaks down and he becomes lost on an isolated road, he goes looking for help and stumbles into the grounds of a grand but dilapidated house. Its residents welcome him with open arms – but there’s more to this strange community than meets the eye. They all know him by name, they’ve prepared a room for him, and they claim to have been waiting for him all along.

Winner the East Anglian Book of the Year Award 2014

‘A beautiful, dream-like narrative. Rarely do debut novels come as assured and impressive as this one.’ Sarah Waters
