"Exceptional... more than simply an exercise in chilling atmospherics... Chapman takes the women's - often seemingly petty - hopes and fears, and creates a fascinating portrait of group consciousness. A psychologically unnerving, elusive and readable book" Financial Times "A gem; weird, vivid and acrobatic, its intricacies are sophisticated, its stance beguiling and complex. This is a writer of real power and aplomb" -- Lucy Ellmann Guardian "This scary, peculiar story of institutionalised women is immaculately handled and builds to a disturbing but inevitable climax" The Times "A beautiful, edgy and captivating novel" -- Victoria Moore Daily Mail "An eerily brilliant, psychologically sharp take on the Bacchae set in a 1920s Finnish sanatorium" -- Adrian Turpin Herald, Christmas round up
