Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

'Unconventional, highly readable, often very funny and strangely touching ... it's the kind of book you can't stop reading but don't want to finish.' Sue Gaisford, Financial Times

The new novel from Mick Jackson, Booker Prize-shortlisted author of The Underground Man and Ten Sorry Tales

'They both stop and stare for a moment. Yuki feels she's spent about half her adult life thinking about snow, but when it starts, even now, it's always arresting, bewildering. Each snowflake skating along some invisible plane. Always circuitous, as if looking for the best place to land...'
