Product description

Review

'This enchantingly elliptical fiction debut [...] sparkles with a gem-like quality... It is a richly textured portrait of rural life under one of the milder communist regimes... It is refreshing to find a fiction writer so free of stylistic pomp. The full cumulative power of Greg's prose is felt towards the end, as the novel accelerates alongside Wiola's adolescence, until we are swept into the unknown' ----Guardian
