Review:

"This thoughtful and beautifully written novel... We cannot fail to be moved" (Diana Hinds Independent)

"Has all the lyric intensity we have come to associate with Scandinavian films...It is full of spirit, observation, insight, sadness, struggle, pain and, inevitably, of hope" (Frieda McGreal Yorkshire Post)

"Sensitive and vivid" (Wendy Jennings Church Times)

"The landscape of pain has never been defined more graphically... A disturbing, moving and thought-provoking novel that stays in the mind long after it is read" (Jewish News)

"It is brilliant: an evocative book of exquisite beauty and exceptional wisdom... Hope is the theme of the novel, and it is explored sensitively, intelligently and philosophically by an author who knows the impact of simple, precise language... Art can change the way we see the world and Gustafsson is a fine, fine artist" (Ken Spillman West Australian)

"A beautiful work, lyrical and bleak, resonant and terse" (New Yorker)
