Product description

Review

Georgina Harding conjures a tale that recalls vintage Michael Ondaatje ... A novel about the passage of time, the senselessness of war, and the need to find and preserve meaning, this is a richly satisfying read (Daily Mail)

I loved Painter of Silence. It was like entering a dream world that became more and more real, until I actually needed to get back to it. Her writing is so gentle and beautiful and takes you so confidently on a journey. I let myself be carried away. Heaven (Esther Freud)

Painter of Silence has recently been longlisted for the Orange Prize, an accolade it richly deserves ... Exquisite ... Her deceptively simple prose gives a startling beauty to the ordinary, and evokes great depth of suffering (Guardian)

Harding's prose is a quiet storm of imagery and emotions ... The rubble and ruin of post-war Romania is tenderly rendered ... it's a heartrending predicament expertly realised. Painter of Silence is further testament to a talent gradually sculpting an impressive body of work. It proves as smooth and serene as a slow incoming tide; the story washing over the pages until the reader is immersed in its depths. This is fiction of the most graceful kind (Independent)

A must-read ... Hauntingly beautiful, for fans of The English Patient (Viv Groskop Red)

Book Description

An intimate and devastating portrait of Romania during and after the Second World War, through the prism of a moving and utterly original friendship
