The Gift of Stones

The Gift of Stones

Jim Crace

From the acclaimed author of Quarantine, a mesmeric novel that breathes life into a distant age.

A coastal community live prosperously crafting fine stone tools. But their proud insularity is breached by raiders, and in the violence a boy loses his arm. Useless as a knapper, he finds a role as the village storyteller, roaming far and returning home with fantastically embellished tales. When the arrival of a new metal threatens all their livelihoods, his fearless imagination becomes a lifesaving gift.
