The Deepest Furrow

“The Deepest Furrow: A Story of Humanity and Landscape”, folk horror written by Jonathan Wood. An intellectual city dweller, compelled by a variety of conflicting circumstances and rebelling against modernism, seeks to captive enlightenment and life’s purpose in the countryside and the rural life. ⁣He comes to an isolated and insular old settlement in a deep valley, inhabited by rural folk, who after much fear, take him into their community and absorb him into their ways. ⁣What begins as a bucolic and romanticized absorption into the community then becomes a very cruel ‘rites of passage’ as modern identity is reversed and reverted to notions. Released by Mount Abraxas Press as a part of With Burning Tongues through Starry Fields series. Book cover illustration.
