About the Author

Edward Docx is the author of the acclaimed The Calligrapher, named a San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of the Year. He lives in London.

Reviews

Docx has a gift for assessing "the exact shape and weight of other people's inner selves, the architecture of their spirit," and although the book teems with characters--the cast reaches nearly Dickensian proportions--even the most ancillary flare into being, vital and insistent.
The New Yorker

A novel so vivid it glows in the dark -- like truth.
The Washington Post

Longlisted for the 2007 Man Booker Prize, and with good reason: well written, vigorously plotted and perceptive about human nature. Kirkus Reviews, Starred

Caustic, hip, and highly recommended. Library Journal

Docx's ability to capture the feel of St. Petersburg, London, New York and Paris adds depth to this portrait of a family in turmoil. Drug addiction, sex, the emptiness of superficial relationships, poverty and music round out the ambitious narrative.

As the mystery of Maria's life and death is revealed, the haunting story hurtles toward a startling conclusion.

Docx has plumbed the depths of understanding and forgiveness with this fascinating book.
