"A rich and fascinating novel that promises rewards with rereading." (Booklist)
"O'Hagan...enchants with his effortless prose, vivid characters...a heartrending tour de force." (Publishers Weekly)
Superbly written, a description of a searing isolation in the midst of a community devoid of insight. The question of what love can survive and how to remain a person with integrity under dehumanising conditions confronts the reader, and leads to heartsearching. An astonishing book.
"Beautifully written, disturbing story"
A powerful evocative story that I found disturbing and possibly to rare to be believable in the end. Sensational performance and worth listening to decide for yourself.
