Publisher's Summary

Ceridwen Dovey's debut novel is a stunning literary achievement and an acute character study of three men held captive after a military coup. All linked closely with the deposed president, the portraitist longs for his pregnant wife, the chef takes solace in preparing meals for the new regime, and the barber lives with the knowledge that he'd often held a razor to the throat of the man responsible for his brother's death.

Critic Reviews

"Dovey's prose gives the events an air of magic and allows this small, fable-like story to plainly illustrate the old axiom about power's ability to corrupt." (Publishers Weekly)
"The brief but intense story concludes in a violent cycle of death, birth and grim continuity. A dense, dark, impressively controlled first work." (Kirkus Reviews)
