Reviews

Hypnotic rhythm ... An acute and profound statement ... One of the most powerful novels I have read in recent years * Amos Oz *
Searing, intense, provocative * Nicole Krauss *
'Brilliant, seamless novel, Zeruya Shalev gives us a family from the inside. With uncanny precision and mastery, she charts the fluctuating consciousness of each of her three main characters * Siri Hustvedt *
This outstanding Israeli novel breaks taboos and tells tough truths about the ties that bind ... This epic is a hypnotic study of an Israeli family by a novelist of immense talent ... The novel is a great work, and Philip Simpson's natural translation from the Hebrew makes Shalev's prose seem as if it were originally written in English * Independent *
An incredible book * Irish Examiner *
