Notă biografică

Kim Fay has lived and travelled all over the world. Four years in Vietnam launched her career as a travel writer, but this is her first novel. She now lives in LA.


This gripping first novel is a real gem. -- Bella An exciting, evocative romp through the jungle where murder, mystery, romance and the maddeningly humid weather make for a gripping debut. -- Marie Claire A detailed, evocative historical adventure set in the 1920s between Shanghai, Saigon and Cambodia ... Great page-turner. -- Red Atmospheric, lyrical, and written in almost painfully beautiful prose, this historical novel sings like a coloratura soprano performing in a gorgeous opera ... the author's evocation of the setting and the foreign misfits that inhabited it is nothing short of magical; the prose, extraordinary. -- Publishers Weekly [This] is an adventure story with three distinct sections, Shanghai, Saigon and Cambodia; all are beautifully placed within the narrative, and yet blend together quite seamlessly to produce a detailed and imaginative journey into an ancient and powerful civilisation ... An abundance of rich and varied characters combine to make this a really satisfying read. -- newbooks An intriguing read that takes different paths to those expected. Recommended. -- Historical Novels Review Fay's extraordinary first novel has everything great historical adventure fiction should - strikingly original setting, exhilarating plot twists, and a near-impossible quest ... Every word of this evocative literary expedition feels deliberately chosen, each phrase full of meaning. -- Booklist
