From The Lantern:
“At a stone hut, which must once have been a shepherd’s borie, I was directed to a field about a kilometer away. I arrived to find a field of hunched backs, the blue rows reverting to dusty green behind the women curled over like commas, cloth bags slung across their bodies.”
“It was an old-fashioned lantern… the kind of lantern that had been used for a hundred years, perhaps by a night watchman dangling it by its loop on a hook at the end of a pole.”
My review will be posted August 2.
This book will be available from HarperCollins on August 9th.
