A very interesting interview with Ross Raisin and your questions threw up many thought-provoking ideas for writers and readers. God's Own Country is not a comfortable novel to read but compelling and left me with a sense that I had entered the Yorkshire countryside. Although Sam is not, in fact, a sympathetic character,his voice, as you say, carries you along and you can't help empathising. I was particularly struck by Ross's comment that Sam could not exist in any other place. I think this is why the novel is so powerful. The rhythm of Sam's language seems to permeate the landscape as he moves around a very confined, yet open space. I am looking forward to his next novel and any other further interviews you do.
