Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A wonderful and moving book; dark but full of hope, hard hitting but poetic. An insightful look at domestic abuse; the sinister and manipulative nature of the perpetrator and the courageof the survivor.

Format: Hardcover
This is not only a book about the horrors of being in an abusive relationship but also about being a writer and being a woman. The writing is powerful, honest and not afraid to play with form and language in interesting ways. I was horrified by the violence that was being inflicted upon the narrator by her husband but entranced by the poetic nature of Kandasamy's writing. An excellent novel, I couldn't put it down.

This ruined me. So smart, so elegant, so ugly and so beautiful. It's a novel on an spirallingly abusive relationship, but it's also about how horror can beget stunning, life-affirming, witty, fierce literature.
