Product description

Review

"A fine, shimmering, mercurial novel" (Observer)

"A brilliantly inventive writer...He understands the nature of story telling and is at once terribly moving and wildly funny" (A. S. Byatt)

"An impressive intellectual achievement" (New Statesman)

"Atxaga holds the attention by his sheer craft, by the complete control he exhibits" (Independent)

"This English version beautifully retains Mr. Atxaga's magically flowing and seemingly simple style... an achievement not made easy by his considerable technical and linguistic virtuosity and his love of inventing ways to make language itself speak with new voices" (New York Times Book Review) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

A sprawling carnivalesque set in an eccentric village, this is a wildly unusual novel, originally written in Basque, from one of the most exciting talents in contemporary European literature. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
