The Days When Birds Come Back (2018)
"The Days When Birds Come Back haunted me every day I read it, and has continued to ever since. I don’t believe I’ve ever read such an exquisitely painful story that has on a daily basis so affected the way I interact with other humans, especially my dearest loved ones. This is a novel that makes me want to pay better attention."
