Reviews

He is a master storyteller...and his observations of human nature in all its facets is wonderfully accurate throughout.
SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
This is as colourful as a fairy tale, and brilliantly translated from the French.
THE TIMES
Told with the simplicity of fable but set on the cusp of the modern world, this is a wonderful tale.
INDEPENDENT
This is a beautifully crafted story detailing the intricacies of the folklores and superstitions which dominated nineteenth-century Oriental village life.
