Product Details


“Brilliantly conjured . . . This is a novel about first secrets, about childhood’s privacy and discovery. . . . Burt’s great talent is to recapture their freshness and power.”
The Guardian

“Burt keeps the tension simmering in the Italian heat by attaching a sense of impending doom to the children’s most innocuous actions. . . . This is a tale for the post—James Bulger generation.”
The Independent

“A menacing, seductive vision of misspent youth.”
The Independent on Sunday

“Beautifully written and achingly sad.”
Woman’s Own

“A haunting, compelling tale.”
Sunday Mirror
