A tale of adventure with as many twists and turns as the enchanting Somerset landscape that forms its backdrop, Two Cows and a Van Full of Smoke is, above all, a celebration of the English countryside—full of magic, history and superstition—where smoke is in the air, and where not all is what it seems. When young Elliot gets a laborer’s job at Mr. Evans’s after being sacked from a pig farm for liberating six of its sows, he thinks he’ll have even more opportunities to lean on gates or stare at fields. But his best mate Spike keeps getting him into trouble, first by showing him what is being grown in a tucked-away polytunnel, and then turning up at his caravan’s door with a van full of weed. As Elliot tries to help his friend get rid of the hot merchandise, they find themselves at the receiving end of a cruel cat-and-mouse game.

About the Author:

Peter Benson was born in 1956 and educated in Ramsgate, Canterbury, and Exeter. His first novel, The Levels, won the Guardian Fiction Prize. This was followed by A Lesser Dependency, winner of the Encore award and The Other Occupant, which was awarded the Somerset Maugham Award. He has also published short stories, screenplays and poetry, some adapted for TV, radio and many translated into other languages.

Review:

'one of the most distinctive voices in modern British fiction.' Evening Standard 'a sharp stylist' Sunday Telegraph 'Vividly, defiantly realistic at times, luridly surreal at others, his writing's ability to compound striking metaphors of the abstract with a graphic physicality has won him a deserved following.' The Times Literary Supplement
