David Almond is known around the world as the author of the novels Skellig, Kit’s Wilderness and The Savage. His first two books–Sleepless Nights (1985) and A Kind of Heaven (1997)–were published by Iron Press, a selection of which appears in Nesting alongside two previously unpublished tales. The stories draw deeply from the Tyneside estate of Almond’s childhood, exploring the themes that would inform his later work, and displaying all the rhythm, lyricism and drive for which he is acclaimed today.
