Sobre o livro

*WINNER OF THE BOOKER INTERNATIONAL PRIZE 2020**ONE OF THE GUARDIAN'S BEST BOOKS OF 2020*'One of the best debut novels I have ever read. Shockingly good ... A classic.' Max PorterThe sensational Dutch bestseller:'Exceptional' (Financial Times)'Exhilarating' (Independent)'Luminous' (Observer)'Beautifully wild' (Guardian)I asked God if he please couldn't take my brother Matthies instead of my rabbit. 'Amen.' Ten-year-old Jas has a unique way of experiencing her universe: the feeling of udder ointment on her skin as protection against harsh winters; the texture of green warts, like capers, on migrating toads; the sound of 'blush words' that aren't in the Bible. But when a tragic accident ruptures the family, her curiosity warps into a vortex of increasingly disturbing fantasies - unlocking a darkness that threatens to derail them all.A bestselling sensation in the Netherlands, Marieke Lucas Rijneveld's radical debut novel is studded with images of wild, violent beauty: a world of language unlike any other, exquisitely captured in Michele Hutchison's translation.'THE MOST TALKED ABOUT DEBUT NOVEL OF 2020 ALREADY' [Dazed & Confused]ONE OF VOGUE'S TOP FIVE DEBUTS OF 2020ONE OF THE OBSERVER'S HIGHLIGHTS OF 2020ONE OF THE GUARDIAN'S TOP TEN BEST NEW BOOKS IN TRANSLATION
