For the reality of his world is brutal and stark. He is not named, nor do we know his crime. But he listens. He listens to the story of York, the prisoner in the cell next to him whose execution date has been set. He hears the lady, an investigator who is piecing together York's past.
He watches as the lady falls in love with the priest and wonders if love is still possible here.
He sees the corruption and the danger as tensions in 'this enchanted place' build. And he waits. Because every monster was once a child, and even monsters have a story.

A gripping and learned study of dysfunctional human behaviour. The narrator, who is on death row and remains nameless until the book's end, explains that the prison, although a place where the walls sigh with sadness, is enchanted: The narrator's magical perspective-which is paradoxically necessary, perhaps, to preserve what remains of his sanity-contrasts heartbreakingly with the parallel tale of an investigator, also unnamed, who is tasked with finding details about the past of another death-row inmate, known as York, that will result in his sentence being commuted, even though York has decided he wants to die Through the novel's rich, haunting prose, Denfeld, who herself has worked as an investigator in death penalty cases, shines a light on lives led with capital punishment on the schedule.
This is a stunning first novel from an already accomplished writer that will leave the reader hoping for more fiction in the author's future. A jubilant celebration that explores human darkness with a profound lyric tenderness and not one jot of sentimentality A wondrous book that finds transcendence in the most unlikely of places, enshrouding horrible things in a gossamer veil of fantasy with a truly unforgettable narrator.
Unusually for a novel with such a subject, there is a genuine lyricism here, which undercuts the more unsettling aspects of the narrative. Lees de eerste pagina's. Reviews Schrijf een review. Kies je bindwijze Bekijk alle bindwijzen 7. Direct beschikbaar. Verkoop door bol. Ebook Op verlanglijstje.
