In an Amazonian city, three old men sit on a bench every day remembering the women they have loved. One day a woman hurries past their bench whom all have reason to remember: Elena Colina Silves, the girl with eyes as blue as the sky who saw a vision and was incarcerated by the church authorities.

Product Description:

The Vision of Elena Silves

Review:

"Written with precision, clarity and rare beauty... Alongside Salman Rushdie and the late Bruce Chatwin, Shakespeare now joins the ranks of the New Exotics school" (Robert Carver New Statesman)

"A story of love and insurrection brilliantly told... A remarkable debut... one of the best books about the continent written by an outsider" ( Sunday Times)

"An Englishman's novel of magic realism, flavoured with the more traditional English spices such as thriller and tourchsong, and a touch of Anglo-Saxon irony... A fine literary novel, combining several traditions and genres of fiction" ( The Times)

"A dénouement that is unexpected, shocking and brilliantly conceived... I closed the novel with both satisfaction and regret" ( Literary Review)

" The Vision of Elena Silves is a terrific novel" (John Sutherland London Review of Books)
