About the book


Letta begins to take an interest in Varina, the tiny Balkan state where her parents grew up. But after the collapse of communism the nation calls for independence, and Letta's enthusiasm for her parent's culture leads her to discover just how fragile the nation really is.

A powerful and timely novel from the award-winning author of TULKU, EVA, A.K. and A BONE FROM A DRY SEA.

What the critics say

The power, versatility, sheer professionalism of [Peter Dickinson's] new book are such as few writers, past or present, can hope to match. A great and eloquent story . . . relentlessly readable.
