Two mysterious strangers appear at a hotel in a small country town.
Where have they come from? Who are they? What catastrophe are they fleeing?
The townspeople want answers, but the strangers are unable to speak of their trauma. And before long, wary hospitality shifts to suspicion and fear, and the care of the men slides into appalling cruelty.
Lloyd Jones’s fable-like novel The Cage is a profound and unsettling novel about humanity and dignity and the ease with which we’re able to justify brutality.
‘A dark fable of imprisonment.’
`As compelling as a fairytale—beautiful, shocking and profound.‘
‘Lloyd Jones has plotted a fine and moving story with enormous compassion, emotional depth and tender insight into humanity.’
‘It is a thought-provoking and affecting book for readers of literary fiction where the morally questionable appears very ordinary.’
