About the book

A quarry. A crazy plan to run away and write a novel.

From the author of the exciting debut Buried Treasure comes this coming-of-age story with a twist:

On the outskirts of Vivo, there is a cabin at the bottom of an abandoned quarry, barely visible from the roadside. With the help of his four best friends, Filo moves into this secluded place to write his first novel. He’s convinced doing so will change his life and save him from a soul-destroying career as an accountant.

The quarry, however, might not be as abandoned as it seems … What or who will Filo discover there? And what price will he pay for his art?

Philosophical, erudite and sexy, God’s Pocket is a thought-provoking read that will haunt you long after you’ve finished the last page.
