Product description

Review

“Anne Charnock’s Sleeping Embers of an Ordinary Mind is an expert braiding together of past, present, and future that puts a fifteenth-century Italian female artist centre stage to say penetrating things about womanhood, creativity, and history.” —The Guardian

“The centuries-spanning story gives the mystery an epic feel.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Acclaimed science-fiction author Anne Charnock combines history, art, and sci-fi in this spinning novel that encompasses fifteenth-century Italy, the present-day, and the twenty-second century.” —Bustle

Sleeping Embers of an Ordinary Mind is certainly one of 2015’s tip-top releases in science fiction.” —Speculiction

“An intriguing look at three women in different time periods.” —Library Journal

“This quiet, lovely, and exquisitely crafted novel is itself a masterclass in composition...As in her debut novel, A Calculated Life, the clarity and refined elegance of Charnock’s prose is a significant achievement.” —Nina Allan, winner of the 2014 BSFA Novella Award for Spin
