A compelling portrait of love, loss and regret
'A masterclass in how less can be more, packed full of atmosphere, emotion and philosophical debate'
De Kat's ambition of theme is served by astonishing tautness of construction and spareness of language
'[A] brilliant slow burn of a novel'
'A sweeping epic, even though it's only 200 pages long ... de Kat can break your heart in 200 words, never mind 200 pages'
