NOMINATING LIBRARY COMMENTS
It is the first novel for adults by an author who has so far written for young adults and who in this novel continues with her highly original style that looks like a poem but reads like a novel. In this kind of sparse and taciturn way the author manages to wrap the reader around her finger and create a very menacing feeling, suggesting more between the lines than within them. In its unsentimental frankness the story becomes much more than just another account of adultery. Tartu Linnaraamatukogu/Tartu Public Library, Estonia
