British writer Tom Vowler's story collection, THE METHOD, won the Scott Prize and the Edge Hill Readers' Prize, and his novels include WHAT LIES WITHIN and THAT DARK REMEMBERED DAY. He's an Associate Lecturer at Plymouth University, where he gained a PhD in creative writing. Represented by Brotherstone Creative Management, Tom is the short fiction editor with Unthank Books, and is an all-rounder for the Authors Cricket XI. His second story collection is titled DAZZLING THE GODS, and his new novel, EVERY SEVENTH WAVE, is out in February 2021.
Vowler is not afraid to be new, to be dangerous with it and flaunt his talent.
THE SHORT REVIEW
EVERY SEVENTH WAVE has strong echoes of Fiona Mozley’s Elmet and Evie Wyld’s All the Birds, Singing. Strongly lyrical, the novel also serves as a literary thriller, with a suspenseful pace that builds to its redemptive finale. EVERY SEVENTH WAVE is a tale of the fates we tether ourselves to, how seemingly benign encounters can provoke both hope and devastation.
