Sinopsis:

WINNER OF THE INDEPENDENT FOREIGN FICTION PRIZE 2013

A Dutch woman rents a remote farm in rural Wales. She says her name is Emilie. She is a lecturer doing some research, and sets about making the farmhouse more homely. When she arrives there are ten geese living in the garden but one by one they disappear. Perhaps it's the work of a local fox.

She has fled from an unbearable situation having recently confessed to an affair with one of her students. In Amsterdam, her stunned husband forms a strange partnership with a detective who agrees to help him trace her. They board the ferry to Hull on Christmas Eve.

Back on the farm, a young man out walking with his dog injures himself and stays the night, then ends up staying longer. Yet something is deeply wrong. Does he know what he is getting himself into? And what will happen when her husband and the policeman arrive?

Gerbrand Bakker has made the territories of isolation, inner turmoil and the solace offered by the natural world his own. The Detour is a deeply moving new novel, shot through with longing and the quiet tragedy of everyday lives.

Críticas:

"A novel of restrained tenderness and laconic humour."
--J.M. Coetzee

"Stealthy, seductive story-telling that draws you into a world of silent rage and quite unexpected relationships. Compelling and convincing from beginning to end."
--Tim Parks

"Bakker's outstanding debut novel, set in the Dutch countryside, is one of those rare works of fiction that everyone should read."
--"Irish Times"

Intelligently thoughtful --Irish Times

'Quietly astonishing.' --Jonathan Gibbs, Times Literary Supplement
