Popis

‚Just downright brilliant… a transcendent, transporting experience‘ ObserverA newborn baby is the sole survivor of a terrifying plane crash. She is raised in wealthy isolation by an overprotective father.She knows nothing of the rumours about a beautiful young woman, hidden from the world. When a suitor visits, he understands far more than he should. Forced to run for his life, he escapes aboard The Porpoise, an assassin on his tail…So begins a wild adventure of a novel, damp with salt spray, blood and tears. A novel that leaps from the modern era to ancient times; a novel that soars, and sails, and burns long and bright; a novel that almost drowns in grief yet swims ashore. Pirates rampage, a princess wins a wrestler’s hand, and ghost women with lampreys‘ teeth drag a man to hell – and in which the members of a shattered family, adrift in a violent world, journey towards a place called home.’A full-throttle blast of storytelling mastery‘ Max Porter
