This novel emerged out of of fascination with Russian poets and particularly Anna Akhmatova. I wanted a generic figure, a woman who preserved the truth of the word, while chaos reigned all around her. I didn't want to individualise the characters too much, so there is very little dialogue in this novel.

''One of the most skilful and imaginative pieces of fiction I have read in years.'
Alex de Jonge, 'Spectator'.

'Full of its own life, dreamed with a fluent and lyrical clarity that should warm and surprise any responsive reader.'
'The Guardian'
