Description

'A terrific novel' Angela Carter

Koko won't do what is expected of her. Defying her family's wishes, she has brought up her eleven-year-old daughter alone in her apartment. And now, after a casual affair, she is unexpectedly pregnant again. What will this mean for her already troubled relationship with her daughter? As she faces the future, memories of her own childhood loss flood into her consciousness, threatening to overwhelm her.

Combining the beauty and unease of a dream, this haunting novel is an unflinching portrayal of a woman's innermost fears and desires.

'As relevant today as when it was published ... at once powerfully uplifting and achingly sad' Japan Times
