"Switching efficiently between perspectives, Karnezis creates a web of painful ironies, misunderstandings and moral dilemmas"

Written in simple, uninflected prose, this short fifth novel from Greek-born Karnezis packs a punch. At its heart are two refugees, bound together when the dinghy they are fleeing in sinks...Switching efficiently between perspectives, Karnezis creates a web of painful ironies, misunderstandings and moral dilemmas. All the while, he emphasises the fragility of human bonds and the persuasive fictions we spin for ourselves.
