An old man encourages Finch, a boy, to steal birds' eggs, before teaching him how to steal bees. Concluded by Samantha Spiro.

An old man encourages Finch, a boy, to steal birds' eggs, before teaching him how to steal bees.

Zoe Gilbert’s debut novel ‘Folk’ conjures up a series of dark and bewitching tales from a remote mythical island – Neverness - a place ripe with shadowy secrets and magic, and where its villagers’ lives are entwined with nature: its enchantments, seductions and dangers.

Zoe Gilbert is the winner of the Costa Short Story Award in 2014. Folk has been long-listed for the 2019 International Dylan Thomas Prize.

Read by Samantha Spiro.
