The Dark Room Reviews


"Intensely observed debut... Perfectly balanced" * Guardian *
"A startlingly powerful debut... Not to be missed" * Daily Mail *
"Ambitious and powerful... Seiffert writes lean, clean prose. Deftly, she hangs large ideas on the vivid private experiences of her principal characters.... Poignant - and ultimately optimistic... Engrossing" * New York Times *
"What a bold book... Compelling... Challenging and substantial" * Time Out *
"Guilt, shame, responsibility, new beginnings, the individual in history - these are Seiffert's subjects, conveyed in a style of deceptive simplicity... Provocative and accomplished" * The Times *
