Set in contemporary Angola, this novel is populated with characters whose victories never quite settle. Like any one of us, they can forget things that have happened to them, and remember things that never did. Theirs is a world where the truth seems to shift from moment to moment, where history itself is up for grabs. Agualusa's slippery narrator takes us on a vivid and enthralling journey across the shifting landscape of memory and history, and - from his unique perspective - reveals a breathtaking love story too.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Fierce originality, vindicating the power of creativity to transform the most sinister acts. Not since Gregor Samsa's metamorphosis have we had such a convincing non-human narrator, brought vividly home to us by Daniel Hahn'

-- Amanda Hopkinson * Independent *

'Strange, elliptical, charming'

* Guardian *

'A poetic, beguiling meditation on truth and storytelling and a political thriller and wholly satisfying murder mystery'

* New Internationalist Books of the Year *

'Humorous and quizzical, with a light touch on weighty themes, the narrative darts about with lizard-like colour and velocity'

-- Boyd Tonkin * Independent *
