A novel by
Tom Cox

It’s a heavy day, and it hangs all over me. I’m deep in it. I’m so far in it, I’m technically invisible, unless you’re extremely near to me, and very few people are.

Tom Cox “synthesizes his passion for music, nature and folklore into a psychedelic and enthralling exploration of village life and the
countryside that sustains it.”

In the late sixties a Californian musician named RJ McKendree blows through Underhill where he writes a set of haunting psychedelic folk songs that will earn him a group of obsessive fans and a cult following.
Two decades later, a couple of teenagers disturb a body on the local golf course. In 2019, a pair of lodgers discover a one-eyed rag doll hidden in the walls of their crumbling and neglected home. Connections are forged and broken across generations, but only the landscape itself can link them together. A landscape threatened by property development and superfast train corridors and speckled by the pylons whose feet have been buried across the moor.


Music by Will Twynham

Accompanying the novel is a unique album. Tom’s Californian musician RJ McKendree is brought to life by Will Twynham (Dimorphodons), who created the novel’s 11-track lost psychedelic record from 1968, Wallflower. Tom says he is “blown away by what Will’s done and how true it is to the way I imagined and described it in the book.”
