When you swear to love, to be faithful, or to do your duty, how does that promise bind you?
West Coast radio host John Knox falls passionately and irrevocably in love with Rachel McAllistair the first time they meet, when a political debate boils over and she punches him. Thrilled by her fire, he pursues her, promising never to leave her.
This promise becomes his burden, as her behaviour whirls out of control. She is abusive and cruel, and yet he stays – even after she does something so awful that both of their lives are changed forever. Increasingly isolated, he struggles to survive – and in doing so, unearths a secret from the battlefields of the First World War.
The Death of the Poet is a daringly honest, transfixing story about being in thrall to someone, being both a victim and a protector, and how early promise can turn into an utterly unrecognisable life. An exploration of violence in love, it’s controversial, devastating, and, in a complicated way, romantic too.

‘Every now and again a book comes along that makes you want to stay up all night reading. This is just such a book. The prose is beautiful and elegant, the characters keenly observed, and the story heartbreaking. I wish it had never ended.’ – Lisa
