Diane Cook’s debut novel, shortlisted for the Booker Prize, is set in a not-too-far-off future that resembles the distant past. The world has been transformed by climate change and urbanisation; the novel’s landscape is one in which its characters spend their days hunting and gathering, making clothes from animal skins and sinews, setting up camp and taking it down again, and searching for clean water.
