From Ross Raisin, the massively acclaimed author of God's Own Country and one of the best young British novelists today, comes Waterline, a devastating and definitive novel of our times.
Mick Little used to be a shipbuilder on the Glasgow yards. But as they closed one after another down the river, the search for work took him and his beloved wife Cathy to Australia, and back again, struggling for a living, longing for home. Thirty years later the yards are nearly all gone and Cathy is dead. And now Mick will have to find a new way to live: to get away, start again, and try to deal with the guilt he feels over her death.
In Waterline, Ross Raisin brings vividly to life the story of an ordinary man caught between the loss of a great love and the hard edges of modern existence.
