Peter Benson: Two Cows & a Vanful of Smoke
Peter Benson will be talking about and signing copies of his latest book, Two Cows and a Vanful of Smoke at Booka on Tuesday 3rd July at 7.00pm.
Described as a tale of adventure with as many twists and turns as the enchanting Somerset landscape that forms its backdrop, Two Cows and a Vanful of Smoke is, above all, a celebration of the English countryside – full of magic, history and superstition – where smoke is in the air, and where not all is what it seems.
Peter Benson’s first novel, The Levels, won the Guardian Fiction Prize. This was followed by A Lesser Dependency, winner of the Encore award, and The Other Occupant, which was awarded the Somerset Maugham Award. He has also published short stories, screenplays and poetry, some adapted for TV, radio and many translated into other languages. Two Cows and a Vanful of Smoke is his latest novel.
