Our Curators said...

An astonishing novel, both a tribute to friendship and a condemnation of armed conflict, this short but sharp book is a hypnotic read.

What the Critics are Saying

An extraordinary novel, full of sadness, rage and beauty'

Sarah Waters

So incantatory and visceral I don't think I'll ever forget it.

Ali Smith, The Guardian

It is an intense exploration of the dehumanising effect of war and colonialism. This slight book explodes with extraordinary force - readers will not forget it in a hurry

The Times

Possibly the most adorable crime novel out this year


Charming, cosy and respectful.


Gently hilarious and utterly charming


Great books change lives
