Publisher Description

'A fantasy, a vivid dream...inventive and brilliant' Guardian

Henri has a passion for Napoleon - but Napoleon has a passion for chicken. As soldier and emperor butcher their way across Europe, glory falls to ruin and love turns to hate.

But, when Henri encounters the red-haired, web-footed Villanelle, he discovers in her an equal. Together they abandon their pasts, and flee to the Venetian canals to meet their singular destiny in the city of chance and disguises.

'A deeply imagined and beautiful book, often arrestingly so.' New York Times

The passion

Her writing is stunning, it's like silk, powerful, smart, deep silk. With her book the passion, I started it and didn't stop till the end, in those few hours she had my hooked. Brilliant stuff.
