Fugue in Green is a tale of monsters, imperfect sunsets and waifs who were born of cats and “speak the language of birds”. Its haunting prose, as sharp and perfect as a diamond and as delicate as a spider’s web, is a prayer cried out loud: a prayer for freedom. Freedom is movement as we see from the book’s opening line:

“Like a bullet in slow motion, she floated over treetops for as long as it took to blink.” (p.7)

Few crave freedom – and are as deprived of it – as an abused child.

Fugue in Green is a marvellous, magical treat! Exquisite writing takes you by the hand and leads you into this secret, surreal garden of wonder and delight.

"Let the imagination go - see what is crawling, blooming, bursting out of the edges of the world. Take seeing back to before you knew a tree was a tree, or that the chair was from the tree that was. Let the world be lights and colours, undefined, without perspective or time; a marvellous vista, explore."

But there is darkness, hardship, cruelt
