A fresh take on the romance novel from the Giller Prize–winning author of Fifteen Dogs

From their very first encounter, it would seem that Gwen and Tancred were made for one another. Like all good romances, Ring will bring them together ... eventually. But first there is, of course, a wrinkle.

Gwenhwyfar's mother, Helen Odhiambo Lloyd, upon intuiting that her daughter is in love, gives her a ring that has been passed down, with three mysterious books, from endless generations of mothers to their daughters. The ring grants the bearer an opportunity to change three things about her beloved – but the ring demands things in return for its miracles.

Complete with a long narrative poem about Aphrodite, Ring turns the literary romance upside down and shakes out its pockets as it meditates on the past, on magic, on honour, on faith, and yes, on love.
