M. J. Hyland is the award winning and Man Booker shortlisted author of Carry Me Down. Her third novel This Is How is a psychologically probing and deeply moving account of a man at odds with the world. Patrick Oxtoby is a perpetual outsider longing to find his niche. When his fiancé breaks off their engagement Patrick leaves home and moves to a remote seaside village. In spite of his hopes for a new and better life Patrick struggles to fit in or make the right impression. He can't shake the feeling that his new friends are con­spiring against him further fracturing his already fragile personality and prompting him to take a course of action that permanently alters the course of his life. This Is How is a mesmerizing and meticulously drawn portrait of a man whose unease in the world as it is leads to his tragic undoing. With breathtaking wisdom and astute insight into the human mind Hyland's latest is a masterpiece that arouses horror and sympathy in equal measure.
