  • 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
