'This searching, beautifully written novel gets to the heart of woman's attempts to step out of the role of her mother's daughter, and make sense of the person she has become. Terrific.'
Kate Saunders, THE TIMES
'Stark and acutely observed realism... The result is visceral, bleak and moving.'
Claire Hazelton, GUARDIAN
'Meike Ziervogel is becoming one of the most interesting figures in the contemporary British and European world, not just because she is a publisher of imagination and daring, but a writer of grace, forensic precision, and power. Rarely has someone given so much from sheer enthusiasm, and talent, and been so worth watching.'
Nicholas Lezard, GUARDIAN critic
'Ziervogel is the brave woman who set up Peirene Press five years ago … Her own debut novel displays similar nerve … This is an ambitious and queasily unsettling novel.'
David Mills, SUNDAY TIMES
