Waterstones Says

Drawing from Vietnamese folklore and history, this gorgeously eerie novel about two young women who go missing decades apart whisks the reader from colonial mansions and haunted woods to derelict zoos and Saigon nightclubs.

Signed Edition

A standard edition is available here.

Two young Vietnamese women go missing decades apart. Both are fearless, both are lost. And both will have their revenge.

1986: The teenage daughter of a wealthy Vietnamese family gets lost in an abandoned rubber plantation while fleeing her angry father, and is forever changed by the experience.

2011: Twenty-five years later, a young, unhappy Vietnamese-American named Winnie disappears from her new home in Saigon without a trace.

The fates of both women are inescapably linked, bound together by past generations, by ghosts and ancestors, by the history of possessed bodies and possessed lands. Barrelling through the sweaty nightclubs of Saigon to ramshackle zoos, colonial mansions and haunted forests, Violet Kupersmith's heart-pounding fever dream of a novel deftly combines Vietnamese history and folklore to create an immersive, playful, utterly unforgettable debut.

“Mesmerising”

A stunning novel that is rather difficult to describe. Evocative, disturbing, downright wierd but completely addictive. The sights, smells, history and superstitions of Vietnam over the decades drew me in, even when I... More

“A book that’s hard to put down”

An eerie but compulsive read. Im still not sure that I understand what happened to each of the characters but maybe that was the idea.
