Product Details


“At once darkly absurd, funny, passionate, wrenching and deeply socially aware. . . . [And] a heartfelt reminder of the many people whose struggles are never known.”
     —The Plain Dealer

“Passionate and entertaining. . . . Mankell writes with both a social conscience and great humor.”
     —The Daily Telegraph (London)

“A serious novel with a lot of heart.” 

“Mankell is giving a voice to those who do not possess one.” 
     —The Independent (London)
“Henning Mankell works . . . astounding magic. . . . He brings us the distinctive but overlapping voices of three perceptive young women who, once their harrowing, poetic floods of pain are released, can never again be ignored.”
     —Washington Independent Review of Books
