Editorial Reviews:

"Sarah Hall...[goes] beneath the skin, delicately exploring the more sable recesses of her characters' minds, the darker patterns of memory and pain, the phantasmagoria of the human psyche."

Tom Bailey, Times Literary Supplement, 06/05/2009


"This....unusual and beautiful book....is a delicate series of character portraits, and a nuanced meditation on love and death, on the crazy struggle inherent to 'being here.' There is the struggle for bare existence, and then, perhaps crazier still, the battle for happiness in the face of the bizarre conditions of life..."
