“Beautiful writing about horrendous acts. Tightly constructed, a book that asks a lot of the reader, with a plot consisting of disjointed events, constant shifts in time, place and focus.and containing vivid images of barbaric behaviors.
The sense of complicity the book evokes is uncomfortable, but the sense of place and clarity of emotion are astounding. The language is both clear and poetic, with images that haunt me.
A brilliant, difficult, troubling book.”
