“I was completely absorbed by this story song of a grandson and grandmother trying to connect both to the world around them and to their sense of self.” —Tina Makereti, author of The Imaginary Lives of James Pōneke and Where the Rēkohu Bone Sings.

“This book kept surprising me. I loved its fascination with the body’s sleights of hand, and the attention it paid to childhood, memory and other buried things.” —Anna Smaill, author of The Chimes and Bird Life.
