A blazingly good novel. About the prisons we build- and build for ourselves by building them for others. About how we give people power over us by making them invisible. About the delights and otherwise of possession. |
Waters takes us into Victorian seance rooms and into the women's prison at Millbank and into the parlours of the rich- and it's a good question as to where- in which of these environments- the horrors lie thickest.
