Editorial ReviewLike all good fables, it conveys the sense of a greater significance beyond itself' Daniel Hahn, Independent. Independent 'There is nothing sentimental about the prose, which is as restrained and delicate as a piece of Indochinese artwork' Ophelia Field, Guardian. Guardian 'This is an extraordinary, powerful and moving novel of the refugee experience, not just from the viewpoint of those who become refugees but also exploring what is best, and worst, in the way in which refugees are welcomed and looked after in their destination countries ... Another outstanding novel by the winner of Independent Foreign Fiction Prize in 2010 for Brodeck's Report. Highly recommended' Sarah Bower, Historical Novels Society. Historical Novels Society
