This novel is for fans of Miss Smilla's "Feeling for Snow", Alice Greenway, Nicole Krauss, Kazuo Ishiguro, Zadie Smith, Jhumpa Lahiri, and Barbara Kingsolver. When Clarissa Iverton was fourteen years old, her mother disappeared leaving Clarissa to be raised by her father. Upon his death, Clarissa, now twenty-eight, discovers he wasn't her father at all.

Review:

'Beautifully written.' -- Jonathan Gibbs, Daily Telegraph

'Graceful and inventive.' -- Peter Carty, Independent

'The whole book [has] peculiarly biting charm, a narrative that manages to be both eerily surreal and fundamentally credible.'
-- Madison Smartt Bell, New York Times
