“Luminous narrative ” – L’Homme au lion

Lovely words for L’Homme au lion (French edition of Green Lion) from the Charybde blog:

Henrietta Rose-Innes makes the city of Cape Town an essential figure, inhabited by the echoes of the past and magnetized by Table Mountain, where rocks, thorns and memories intertwine … a luminous narrative … enhanced by the magnetic descriptions of place, as if the pen of the writer was a sensitive nerve as well as a wide-open eye.

L’Homme au lion is available from Swiss publisher Editions Zoe, who also published Nineveh in 2014.
