Review:

" A complete delight... Ancient myth meets daily grind, and the ordinary and the fantastic... are mingled everywhere you look" (Boyd Tonkin Independent)

"Delightful, unforgettable and splendidly peculiar" ( Spectator)

"Medvei's prose is limpid and particular, telling the story with an exquisite control that interfuses the sublime and ridiculous in exact proportions, the one hidden inside the other... The result is pleasurable and profound. Medvei never puts a foot wrong" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Medvei's fable about the inexplicable nature of human passion unfolds with a gentle surrealism" ( Financial Times)

"This absolutely engrossing tale is written with serene poise" ( Sunday Times)

Book Description:

When Mr Shaw meets the beguiling and enigmatic Caroline, she changes his life. But Caroline is a donkey, and their happiness is soon threatened.
