'Truly one of the most beautiful stories you'll ever read... What's it about? I'd love to have a stab at explaining, but I can't. You're just going to have to find out for yourself' JOANNA CANNON
'I laughed, I cried, I sat quietly and thought about what I'd read... a future classic' CLARE MACKINTOSH
'I read it in one breath... true and tragic and funny and hopeful and big - big enough somehow to contain all of our stories and all of our lives inside it' JOANNA GLEN
A young man walks into the woods on the worst morning of his life and finds something there that will change everything.
It's a tale that might seem familiar. But how it speaks to you will depend on how you've lived until now.
Sometimes, to get out of the woods, you have to go into them. Isaac and the Egg is one of the most hopeful, honest and wildly imaginative novels you will ever read.
