Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Simply astonishing…A book about life force, the precious will to live, and all the things that can suck it right out of a person,” Los Angeles Times
“Astonishing.” Guardian (London)
“Rarely in this reviewer’s memory has a debut novel emerged with such a profound sense of place…Descriptions are so vivid, yet so integrated and organic, that the reader can almost feel the lassitude of stifling humid air; smell the rich, warm earth; and see the furrowed fields, the dark mountains in the distance…A slow, seductive dive into another time and place, a deep, quiet place.” Boston Globe
