Edward Docx's Journey to the Amazon

04 April 2011

Edward Docx's electrifying new novel leaves the St Petersburg of Self Help behind for the depths of the jungle.

Set deep in the South American jungle, Edward Docx's brooding novel, with its Conradian echoes, pits Western 'progress' against primeval nature... Beautifully crafted.

Read in the Observer about his travels to the Amazon and the inspiration behind The Devil's Garden. Did you know that there remain 100 uncontacted tribes in the Amazon, and that the forest produces ‘one breath in every five’ of the world’s oxygen? It’s awe-inspiring stuff, and the novel is just as extraordinary…
