ABOUT

"A furiously gifted writer." —The Washington Post

“Paul Kingsnorth’s books have such a profound affect on me
that I always feel I must make them into a play or a film or something
after reading them. In a world of such confusing news and
opinion, I always find a story in Paul’s writing that leads me to
an authentic place in the world.” —Mark Rylance


Synopsis

After moving with his wife and two children to a smallholding in Ireland, Paul Kingsnorth expects to find contentment. It is the goal he has sought — to nest, to find home — after years of rootlessness as an environmental activist and author. Instead he finds that his tools as a writer are failing him, calling into question his foundational beliefs about language and setting him at odds with culture itself.

Informed by his experiences with indigenous peoples, the writings of D.H. Lawrence and Annie Dillard, and the day-to-day travails of farming his own land, Savage Gods asks: what does it mean to belong? What sacrifices must be made in order to truly inhabit a life? And can words ever paint the truth of the world — or are they part of the great lie which is killing it?
