Based on Harvest by Jim Crace

Jim Crace talks about his new novel Harvest, which will also be his last as he has announced he is retiring as a novelist. The writer of award winning novels such as Continent, Booker shortlisted Quarantine, The Gift of Stones and most recently All That Follows, Harvest is set in an isolated rural community during an unspecified time which feels like the middle ages but could equally be post apocalyptic.
