"an extraordinarily atmospheric and often harrowing study of obsession and possessive love"

Occupying similar territory to Gabriel Tallent’s My Absolute Darling and Karen Dionne’s The Marsh King’s Daughter, Resin has the gruesomely compelling quality of a Brothers Grimm fairytale. Jens wants everything preserved as it is – using resin where necessary – and guards his remote and increasingly cluttered farm jealously, sending the exceptionally resourceful Liv out on night forays to steal food and household items from their not-so-near neighbours. Eventually, pub landlord Roald, perplexed by the thefts from his kitchen, decides to investigate. It’s an extraordinarily atmospheric and often harrowing study of obsession and possessive love.
