James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Fiction Best Book
The tale of a man's obsession with a woman, or is it two women? Justine has a twin sister, and the narrator is increasingly unsure as to the real identity of the woman he desires. Alluding to the Marquis de Sade's work of the same name, the novel explores the line between imagination and reality.



Praise for this book
