'Smart, strange, coping with death through Light' Margaret Atwood
'Extraordinary, wise, funny, adventurous' A. L. Kennedy

'I couldn't put it down. A cult following seems certain' Literary Review
'Refreshing as well as disconcerting to read a novel that sets aside convention so resolutely' Guardian
'Opts to push the boundaries of what the novel is' Telegraph
'A comic metaphysical thriller' Scotland on Sunday

In this darkly ironic novel - a quest for truth, a satire, an elegy - Joanna Kavenna displays fearless originality and wit in confronting the strangeness of reality and how we contend with the death of those we love. Beautiful, ethereal drawings by Oly Ralfe illustrate this haunting journey through time, space and human understanding.
