Publisher's Summary

Author of the winner of the Costa Book of the Year award, The Mermaid of Black Conch.

August Chalmin feels the weather like no one else. A large awkward recluse, with bright orange hair and sun-shy eyes, August hides himself away behind the counter of a Shepherd's Bush deli. One winter's day, two things change his life forever: his mother's ex-lover, Cosmo, shambles back into his life, and he discovers a rash on his arm which looks like frost. A rash which is frost. As Cosmo raises questions about August's identity, August finds himself changing with the seasons, in a journey that takes him deep into his past and to the very centre of his soul....

introverted.

narration was good. Could not continue with the obsessive hyperpersonal story. This is not what I expected from the review. Rather unpleasant.
