Open Kate Wyer’s Girl, Cow, & Monk and find interlinked novellas unfolding like a set of time-lapse portraits, united by their longing and inherent magic. In “Girl, Cow” a girl and her cow embark on a journey along the sea, going anywhere other than here; “Monk” follows the mysteries and austerity of monastic life, a vow of silence, desire and a (re)discovery of voice.
