Three orphaned siblings reckon with a complicated inheritance in this novel of ghosts, stalled lives and budding desires - from a rising star on the European literary scene.
'Minor's acute, elliptical observations and silky prose are a delight to read, as the misunderstandings, machinations and mysteries of past and present knit together, fall apart, and re-establish themselves in an uneven, bright weave in Caroline Wright's distinctive, unforced translation' - Irish Times From a rising star on the European literary scene: a sharp-eyed, witty novel of budding desires, persistent ghosts and frayed family ties Over the decades since their parents died, siblings Sidsel, Ea and Niels have drifted apart, retreating in order to protect their most vulnerable parts. But single mother Sidsel's last-minute work trip to London, site of past transgressions, and Ea's chance visit to a San Francisco clairvoyant - seeking contact with their late mother - force the trio to reckon with their shared history and complicated inheritance.
