We Are Together Because by Kerry Andrew

Four sort-of siblings spend a summer in the south of France; swimming, talking, thinking, getting to know each other in the house their shared father owns but alone together for the first time. Things are already slightly weird, and then they get weirder...

I love Kerry Andrew's work. Novels, choral compositions, modern folk music as 'You Are Wolf', Kerry's talents are seemingly endless and this, their third novel, is my favourite of the three. Each of Kerry's novels (all of Kerry's work) is imbued with folk lore, nature, landscape, and the people finding their place amongst it all. There's been a sprinkling of magic realism, and the books have all pulled me deeply into their world and their characters. We Are Together Because has themes of sex, gender, and sexuality running through it, and it leans into science fiction while its feet are firmly planted on this earth.

Both the sky and water feature large in the narrative – as with all their books – and we all know how easily I am inspired by both those things! The shades I've created attempt to summon the soft light, the swimming lake, the sinister sky, and the life around the pool, with its dusty rippled surface and dappled light...

Our 'currently reading' micro-collections are limited edition shades inspired by the book currently on my bedside table.

Each collection comprises just a handful of shades, dyed on a variety of yarn bases and is released as I'm reading a book I'm loving.

Once they're gone, that's it! They are all one-of-a-kind shades that won't reappear, so if you see something you love grab it while you can.

Please note - this limited edition collection does not qualify for our 'sweater quantity' discount.
