Tim Thornbourne, successful in business but not in marriage, retreats to the country to grow gourmet and largely forgotten fruit. In time his orchard would become a Mecca for foodies and he, Tim Thornbourne, would be The Man Who Rediscovered the Medlar. But the last thing he expected was for the orchard to become a cooperative venture. Moving and surprising fiction from an author described by World Fantasy Award-winner Jeff VanderMeer as "Rapacious, intelligent and witty".
