'Hauntingly good, delicious and dark. With sensuous shimmering imagery, Kohler tells a story of teenage tribalism, awash with dreamy eroticism ... the language is poetic, elegant and brilliantly visual' Elle 'Written with a real atmospheric nostalgia that conjures up the wildness of the veld, and the passion and drama of adolescence ... an unusual, and peculiarly satisfying novel' TLS 'Sultry and elegant, delicately decadent, it is permeated with heat and languor, and alive with complex currents of passion' Patrick McGrath 'Picnic at Hanging Rock meets Lord of the Flies' Scotland on Sunday
