Strongly reviewed novel from Nicola Barker, whose previous works include "Love Your Enemies, Heading Inland" (short stories) and "Reversed Forecast" and "Small Holdings" (novels). "This is a stunning novel by the most unexpected talent around... Far out! Buy immediately!" "Time Out".
A novel about stripping off layers of prejudice and lies, about the possibility of redemption, and laying bare the truth. It is also about coming to terms with the past, and about the fantasies people construct in order to protect their fragile inner selves.
