'Stunning ...The raging, torrential voice of the author is something rare.' - The New York Times

Rarely have the foundations upon which our ideas of motherhood and womanhood rest been so candidly questioned. This compelling novel tells the story of one woman’s headlong descent into what she calls an “absence of sense” after being abandoned by her husband. Olga’s “days of abandonment” become a desperate, dangerous freefall into the darkest places of the soul as she roams the empty streets of a city that she has never learned to love.

When she finds herself trapped inside the four walls of her apartment in the middle of a summer heat wave, Olga is forced to confront her ghosts, the potential loss of her own identity, and the possibility that life may never return to normal again.

“A story of strife to stability”

Initially the main character didn’t endear herself to me and I found her very self absorbed although that was probably due to the power of the author’s narrative. However as the story developed, she regained her... More
