a simply fantastic book. after a brutal beginning the book settles down to consider the occupation of East Timor by Indonisia. Not for the faint hearted, if you can survive the first 20 pages then you will be rewarded with one of the most beautiful books that you can ever read. How this book failed to win the Booker prize, or indeed recive international recognition I will never know. Brilliant.
