Why Peirene chose to publish this book: â€˜This is a tragedy about a woman who yearns for love but ends up in a painfully destructive conflict with her sister. It is also a story about loneliness â€" both geographical and psychological.

â€˜Itâ€™s a liberating feeling when you get a completely original story in your hands.â€™
â€˜Raw and dark and wonderfully different from anything else.â€™
