Winner of the Impac Prize 2015.

A beautifully written and unexpectedly thrilling novel, this book defies categorisation and almost reinvents itself from one chapter to the next. Dark, unsettling, intriguing and exciting it is that rare thing, a hugely enjoyable and readable book which will have you thinking about it and its themes for weeks to come.

 

Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2013.
