Reviews

'The way she intertwines past and present, nightmare and social comedy, brutal suffering and contemporary flirtation is adroit and elegant... everyone will read with horror and fascination'

-- Edmund White

'Makes us question how memories are made, and fates formed'

-- Gillian Slovo

'Stunning - it really stayed with me'

-- Helen Kennedy QC * Books of the Year, The Guardian *

'Clever, unexpectedly funny and pegs along at a thrillerish pace'

* Daily Mail *

'This novel delivers. The style is lean, evocative, and highly readable. The characters are sympathetic and believable. The plot is a delicate thread as strong as a fishing line and as capable of reeling in.'

* Toronto Globe and Mail *

'What gives this wonderfully sparse book its tension and grasp are the clashes between two movements - like two cymbals being brought together, the movement backwards of memory, and the movement forward of consequences. And so it speaks history, and one cannot stop listening'

-- John Berger
