"Remarkable . . . her characters glow with life and humour"
— Ian McEwan
Set in Singapore, and spanning fifty years, Ponti is the story of three women: sixteen-year-old Szu; her monstrous and beautiful mother, Amisa; and Circe, Szu’s unlikely friend. Winner of the Deborah Rogers Writers’ Award, this is a novel about love and friendship, and about a guilt spanning decades.
