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.
