In hypnotic and mesmerizing language, Gunn explores the dark world of a young girl who has grown up with a mother dependent on storytelling and the oblivion of addiction - her only way of coping with the memory of her lost love, the girl's father. Raised on deceptive tales of happiness, the younger woman is drawn into and begins to relive the real story of pain, abandonment, and the tyranny of desire. As her life spirals out of control, the tangled yarn of her mother's past begins to be unraveled - until finally she can come to tell a story that is her own. Proof of Kirsty Gunn's powerful gift, this luminous and disturbing novel reveals the terrible intimacy of family love and the redemptive power of storytelling.
