Beautifully written, disturbing story
A powerful evocative story that I found disturbing and possibly to rare to be believable in the end. Sensational performance and worth listening to decide for yourself.

It limped slowly towards an inevitable conclusion. I am still waiting for something to happen. Well written but truly depressing.
Superbly written, a description of a searing isolation in the midst of a community devoid of insight. The question of what love can survive and how to remain a person with integrity under dehumanising conditions confronts the reader, and leads to heartsearching. An astonishing book.
