'Gorgeous, completely original, and quite disturbing, usually all three at the same time. Beware! This book might swallow you up.'

A summer reading pick for Kirkus Reviews, PopSugar & USA Today

 

For those who can't holiday abroad this summer, explore the heart of Vietnam in this bewitching, exhilarating and utterly immersive novel

 

Two young Vietnamese women go missing decades apart. Both are fearless, both are lost. And both will have their revenge. 1986 : The teenage daughter of a wealthy Vietnamese family gets lost in an abandoned rubber plantation while fleeing her angry father, and is forever changed by the experience. 2011 : Twenty-five years later, a young, unhappy Vietnamese-American named Winnie disappears from her new home in Saigon without a trace. The fates of both women are inescapably linked, bound together by past generations, by ghosts and ancestors, by the history of possessed bodies and possessed lands. Barrelling through the sweaty nightclubs of Saigon to ramshackle zoos, colonial mansions and haunted forests, Violet Kupersmith's heart-pounding fever dream of a novel deftly combines Vietnamese history and folklore to create an immersive, playful, utterly unforgettable debut.
