Iola and Pijin make up stories to test each other, stories of daring and adventure, of bad people and of Gwyn who drives his ice-cream up the hill to their town every week. Gwyn is a dangerous man and Pijin knows it. Iola is not so sure. As they grow up and their friendship grows more complicated, some of their stories fall silent, but some will come true.

Review quote

'A coming of age novel that turns into something of a murder mystery, Pigeon is written in a deceptively simple, thoroughly engaging style.' Bill Rees, Wales Arts Review; 'An exquisite novel by a great new talent.' M.J. Hyland; '...might have been authored by Faulkner... pitch-perfect.' Omar Sabbagh, New Welsh Review'
