Unlike any book I have ever read. I was still hungry after the last word dripped off my tongue, so I licked my fingers and roamed the pages for loose crumbs. The hunger remains.... A 5 star food establishment, indeed!

A book of seven fictionaly short stories, each unexpected in theme, and written in a manner that the reader has no obvious signs that point towards their conclusions. Beautiful prose. A quick, but satisfying read.

A moving and fascinating novel that gradually hooked me. This is an alternate account of the 40 days in the desert of Jesus (although the name is never used in the text). The story reorients received views about the ancient Middle East, biblical stories and daily life. In the process it can sensitise non-historians to the cosy fictions we too often live with.

had difficulty reading this - lovely language, well written, just not in the mood when attempting to complete it. Would probably have given it a much better, positive review if I'd attempted to read it at another time
