Product description


"... an unsettling, weirdly evocative novel, evidently superbly researched...memorably poignant." -- Jon Barnes, Times Literary Supplement, November 5th 2004

"...a meaty read, full of fascinating information... and a poignant story of love and betrayal, racism and abuse." -- Mary O’Sullivan, Sunday Independent, February 13th 2005

"...compelling... splendidly affecting...strange and stirring...painted in deliberately rough, Bruegel-like images..." -- Richard Eder, Los Angeles Times, July 17th 2005

"...gripping... the plot gradually unravels in a most absorbing manner…a new voice in original entertaining and challenging fiction." -- Cathryn Scott, The Big Issue, August 23rd 2004.

"...quietly compelling... she has a poet's eye for beauty and a gift for physical description... it is not easily forgotten." -- Mary Carole McCauley, Baltimore Sun, July 17th 2005
