About the Book

This lyrical novel unfolds the magical story of a shattered narrator weaving her wholeness through language, analysis and the writing of stories and dreams. Franz Kafka remarked that 'a book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us" this is such a book. Immersed in world mythology, psychoanalysis and an intense interiority, the narrator in this unsettling and fragmented book, finally claims the daylight world of a transformed reality. An astonishing journey into the psyche of a young woman recovering her self in this jigsaw puzzle of a novel, where the reader is made part of the puzzle.
