From an award-winning writer, comes a mesmeric novel about a young woman falling under the spell of an older man. Frances is a young graduate student spending a summer volunteering in rural France. At the eco-farm Noa Noa, she comes under the influence of its charismatic and domineering owner, Paul, and finds herself entangled in a disorienting, uneven relationship. They embark on a fraught road trip across the South of France that forces them to reckon with uncomfortable truths about power, passivity, and the idea of “being good.” 

About the author: Daisy Lafarge was born in Hastings and studied at the universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow. Her poetry collection Life Without Air, was shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot Prize. Paul, the winner of a Betty Trask Award, is her debut novel.  She lives in Glasgow.

Paul is available from the Wigtown Book Festival shop HERE
