The Field

April 28, 2022

Joined by something that can inflict change on an unimaginable scale, the creatures of the Field must put aside their differences to avoid losing everything.

The world is a field, the parts of the field – the Hedgerow, Copse, Riverbank and more – are countries and the different creatures who call them home are us.

Like us, these creatures become ever more reliant upon one another and, through trial and error, have to learn how to live together, which often involves conquest and bloody fighting.

Freddie Hamilton grew up in the rural southeast of Tasmania, where his family had a wildlife sanctuary. He spent his childhood making friends with unusual animals like quolls, pademelons, corellas, galahs and, of course, Tasmanian devils. Freddie’s undergraduate studies covered a variety of courses including urban history and natural environments, as well as creative writing, going on to complete his post-graduate social science degree in Development Studies at Oxford University. The Field is his first novel.
