After moving with his wife and two children to a smallholding inIreland, Paul Kingsnorth expected to find contentment. The plan was to root himself and his family, grow food, educate his children, plant trees for fuel. He wanted to be freer, to learn new things and live closer to nature. Instead, a growing sense of dislocation caused the tools he relied on daily as a writer – his words, his stories – to fail. Savage Gods assembles a deeply honest portrait of a writer rebuilding his belief in language, one word at a time, and speaks of the need in us all to find belonging in an uncertain world.

I always find a story in Paul’s writing that leads me to an authentic place in the world.” Mark Rylance

“A poignant, honest portrait of a crisis of faith, not in God or Self but a far rarer thing, a crisis of belief in words themselves, the very materials of the writer’s mind.” Jay Griffiths
