DescriptionThis mesmerizing novel is about a sixteen-year-old girl who lives in a rectory and works in a dance hall. Gradually she embarks upon a "personal project": she digs pits in the rectory garden and "looks for the dead." Her story, which has the brevity and magical intensity of a fairy tale, is marked equally by tragedy and dark humor.
