Tom Berry is a hunter, a man who would be most content living out his days in the wilderness with just enough ammunition and kerosene to last the winter. A single father, he has raised his children with care and quiet determination, but when his son Curtis gets into trouble with the law and goes on the run, Tom discovers that might not have been enough.
Born and raised in Canada, Sarah Leipciger lives in London with her family, and teaches creative writing to prisoners. Her short fiction has been shortlisted for the Asham Award, the Fish Prize and the Bridport Prize. THE MOUNTAIN CAN WAIT is her first novel.
