What a bizarre book, and I mean this in the best possible way. I can’t recall when I’ve encountered a story so disjointed and dream-like. The plot: a mother lies on her deathbed, recalling the last days of her life. Why is she dying? Where is her daughter now? How is the young boy who “speaks” to her in this void connected to all this? The plot isn’t the highlight - it’s the brilliantly structured writing that curls around your consciousness, making you feel uneasy and off balance. This short novel can easily be read in an afternoon. Do yourself a favor: turn off your devices and get lost in this eerie tale of the boundaries of motherhood and ecological horror.
