The Absent Lord


About the Author

The Absent Lord

Jason Beacon swerved off a prescribed path to Law while young. He has had several mini-careers, including journalist, editor and labourer, and has been known to go missing in the former Soviet Union. He wrote The Absent Lord over 10 days whilst stuck in a tent above the snowline. It is his second not-exactly-a-novel. Very slightly less young, he now lives in London.

Book Reviews

“This is a cracker - buy it for Christmas”
— Lucy Corbett

Welsh Academy of Art

“A book within a book, more of a fable than a novel, it is filled with characters, heroes, villains and more; escapades and hi-jinks and candles abound. This is a book I will read again and again! Highly recommend”
— Charlene Connors
