Reviews

* Highly original. Her prose is poetic in the true sense: precise as a scalpel, lyrical and the story is unputdownable. -- Ruth Padel Guardian * What a marvelous writer Clement is. She contains all this power in a prose that is simple and simply beguiling. A cri de coeur. Scotsman * Might have been produced by Angela Carter ... Weird, unpredictable and magic realist. Independent * Vivid with detail, each colour-soaked page leading us irresistibly to the next. -- Kirsty Gunn, author of Featherstone * An astonishing novel, every line alive, leading as if effortlessly to a shocking climax. A work of power and originality. -- Alan Sillitoe, author of The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner
