'I haven't read anything this good - this bracing, unflinching and alive - for a long time' Nicole Krauss, author of The History of Love

About the Author

Jenny Erpenbeck was born in East Berlin in 1967. She has worked on opera and musical productions and her fiction has been translated into 13 languages worldwide.


'A haunting, offbeat novella of real profundity.' Lionel Shriver 'With the detached spare prose and mysterious internal logic of a fairy tale, the writing has a dark, transformative power - it gets into the blood stream and refuses to leave. Beguiling and original.' The Times 'Erpenbeck excels as miniaturist, examining the psychology of her blank-eyed outsider with language as sharp as a scalpel.' Guardian 'Intense and beautifully written' Time Out 'A book that begins simply and ends simply, yet one that prods at you until you are completely overwhelmed. A fresh literary sensation.' 5-star reader comment on amazon.co.uk
