Book Description HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Where itaranta shines is in her understated but compelling characters Red star review (for MEMORY OF WATER), Publishers Weekly. Emmi Itaranta s prose combines the lyricism of Ishiguro s NEVER LET ME GO. This is her second novel, following the award-winning MEMORY OF WATER. The tapestry of life may be more fragile than it seems: pull one thread, and all will unravel. In the City of Woven Streets, human life has little value. You practice a craft to keep you alive, or you are an outcast, unwanted and tainted. Eliana is a young weaver in the House of Webs, but secretly knows she doesn t really belong there. She is hiding a shameful birth defect that would, if anyone knew about it, land her in the House of the Tainted, a prison for those whose very existence is considered a curse. When an unknown woman with her tongue cut off and Eliana s name tattooed on her skin arrives at the House of Webs, Eliana discovers an invisible network of power behind the city s facade. All the while, the sea is clawing the shores and the streets are slowly drowning. Seller Inventory # AA89780007536061
