...a profoundly sad story. But it's also wise, darkly funny and brave, told in spare sentences, punctuated with fantastic images... A story that lodges in your bones and stays there. * The New York Times * A thoughtful story that lingers in the mind. * Daily Express * A funny, moving story which brought a lump to my throat at the end.
