Product description

Review

Sharp and uncompromising, it is a ripsnorting read that leaves us wondering where the needle will be pointing at the moment the moral compass is smashed to pieces (Independent on Sunday)

A thoughtful novel that envelops us in the oppression and beauty of the rural prison . . . each voice is distinct, believable and stubborn in its refusal to be easily known. Touchingly evocative (Financial Times)

A masterclass. The inmates' stories evoke larger questions about justice and privacy, power and powerlessness (Guardian)

Captures the hunger for self-improvement tinged with a pervasive sense of melancholy (Sunday Telegraph)

Thoughtful, beautifully written. A candid exploration of journalistic ethics (Observer)

Extraordinary ... Lalwani writes with wonderful clarity and intelligence (Times)

Gripping, heartbreaking, truly horrifying . . . simmers with understated menace (Marie Claire)

Extraordinary... What Nikita is really, really brilliant at is voice and people (BBC Radio 2)

About the Author

Nikita Lalwani was born in Rajasthan and raised in Cardiff. Her first novel Gifted was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize, shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award and won the Desmond Elliott Prize. She lives in London.
