Praise for The Village

“A thoughtful novel that envelops us in the oppression and beauty of the rural prison . . . Each voice is distinct, believable and stubborn in its refusal to be easily known. . . . Touchingly evocative.”Financial Times
“Thoughtfully and often beautifully written . . . a candid exploration of journalistic ethics.”The Observer
