'A spellbinding novel, beautifully written in a lyrical, poetic style' Jacqui Patience, Shadow Independent Foreign Fiction Prize judge.
'A wonderful, exceptional writer ... a timeless storyteller' Carsten Jensen.
'Captivating ... the author eloquently harnesses an overwhelming sense of enormity and vastness ... this is a story of life, love and those left behind. It is a tale punctuated by the stark spectrum of human foibles, but equally one of strength, victory and selflessness in the face of adversity. The dizzying climax will leave you breathless' Susan Swarbrick, Glasgow Herald.
'Recalls a Nordic version of one of Cormac McCarthy's journeys ... Devour this book with a hot drink in a warm room' Boyd Tonkin, Independent.
