Summary
Accompanied by her two children, a woman tries to gain entry to a walled garden. The three have been on a long journey, making an escape of sorts. The children have never been here before. The woman has come home. But home is not as it was. Even when the woman gains entry, what she finds is not what she left. Her mother, her brother, her family - and herself - have experienced tragedies they do not discuss, and behave in ways that others pretend to ignore. Like a Bergman film or a Pinter play, Julia Leigh has created a work of unforgettable atmosphere and psychological drama - a strange and absolutely compelling vision of a family full of secrets, a short novel that ranks with the finest international literature
Summary
Joining a pack of feral dogs after being abandoned by his family, 4-year-old Romochka of late-20th-century Moscow slowly discards his human attributes to survive two fiercely cold winters and preys on people for food before attracting the attention of the police and scientific community.
