God's Snake is the story of Anna, a young girl growing up in a military family amid the turmoil of post-war Greece. By a slow laying bare of innocence to wisdom, Anna comes to an understanding of the world: there is grace at the centre and violence at every edge. What grace and love she finds are female; the violence, power and deceit are male. Written in spare, haunting prose, this book has the vivid clarity of a dream, the vigour and resonance of a fable. It is an astonishing debut of power and compassion.
