Permafrost by Eva Baltasar


Eva Baltasar

A brisk novel that perfectly captures the essence and mood of a woman adrift, as she seeks solace in sexual encounters and thoughts of suicide. Moving between Barcelona, Belgium and Scotland, there is no real sense of place or plot, but a narrative - of family, love and societal expectations - that is intense, dark and acerbic. This is a short book with short chapters, yet at no point is the reader made to feel short-changed.
