Review:

"A chilling and disturbing novel in which family represents the heart of darkness." * The Times * "Stark and gently funny, this is a tragic and lovely novel." * Guardian * "Reading the Dutch novelist Renate Dorrestein is an infallible reminder of how rare it is to find a gripping story about the old and the very young ... an effectively touching translation of a tale of three disregarded nobodies." * Independent Magazine * "Her novels read like film scripts...psychological thrillers in which what's most to be feared is closest to home...painfully cutting, and surprisingly funny...a truly courageous writer." * Independent * "Gripping and unexpected, dramatic yet understated ... well-crafted, moving and compelling tale." * Oxford Times *
