Product description

Review

'The relationship between the two women is very well done - tense, hinting all the time at some fatal incident ...truly disturbing, utterly believable ... sensitive, never prurient' (Margaret Forster)

'Elizabeth Day has written an absorbing and moving novel in which she has managed to convey the chronic damage that a father, wife and daughter may do to one another. Her writing is both delicate and direct, not an easy combination to effect, but she has pulled it off' (Elizabeth Jane Howard)

'A daring, absorbing and beautifully-written story of damage and betrayal, this is an exhilarating and deeply affecting first novel' (Jennie Rooney, author of Inside the Whale)

'Written with an imagination and emotional sensitivity that elevate it far beyond the clichés of middle-class melodrama, Scissors, Paper, Stone is a moving, terrifyingly real account of how love can be bent out of all recognisable shape.' (Observer)

Book Description

A frank and beautiful story of damage, survival and restoration from an exhilarating new literary voice
