'I can talk for as long as you like, no problem. You'll just have to tell me when to stop. How far back do you want to take it?'

Tell is a probing and compelling examination of the ways in which we make stories of our own lives and of other people's. Jonathan Buckley's novel is structured as a series of interview transcripts with a woman who worked as a gardener for a wealthy businessman and art collector who has mysteriously disappeared.

The joint winner of The Novel Prize, Tell is a work of strange and intoxicating immediacy that explores money, art and industry, the intimacy and distance between social classes, and the complex fluidity of memory.

Praise for Jonathan Buckley:

'Buckley's fiction is subtle and fastidiously low-key...every apparently loose thread, when tugged, reveals itself to be woven into the themes [and] gets better the more you allow it to settle in your mind.' - Michel Faber, The Guardian

'Exactly why Buckley is not already revered and renowned as a novelist in the great European tradition remains a mystery that will perhaps only be addressed at that final godly hour when all the overlooked authors working in odd and antique modes will receive their just rewards.' - Ian Sansom, Times Literary Supplement
