Freddy thinks he has committed matricide, and his fantasies – or perhaps realities – become stories which twist back through time to varying landscapes. He searches for a home, only to find it in an unexpected place. When able and allowed to return to the present, he can choose which tale to tell.

Reviews

A strong savour of ORLANDO about it- that is, of Woolf at her most flirtatious, bold and Colette-ish.
INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
A wonderful feat... the descriptive writing, the sheer joy of words...
DAILY TELEGRAPH

DAILY MAIL
A wildly inventive exploration of the mother-daughter relationship, by the wonderful Michele Roberts.
Joanna Trollope
