Product description

Review

This is an extremely promising debut: the handling of tone and perspective is assured; the prose lucid and elegant throughout. --Financial Times

Deeply affecting and beautifully evocative, Okparanta's novel is the perfect book to lose yourself in. --Pride

This collection knocked me out because the stories are quiet and understated and lucid and gather up their power almost without the reader realizing it, then they break your heart, just like that. Such subtle and open and strong writing. --The Millions --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
