“Tectonic” Nineveh gets glowing review from Book and Brew

Book and Brew reviewer Jasmin Kirkbride gives Nineveh a strong recommendation in a new review:

From the outset, Nineveh is characterised by vibrant insectoid imagery: the opening chapter focuses on a tree that has been colonised by caterpillars, for example. In the hands of any other author, such a motif might make your skin crawl, but under Rose-Innes’ deft touch it makes for compulsive, surprisingly beautiful reading. Right up to the last pages, you cannot be sure quite where the fleeting – often surreal – imagery is going to take you.
