I can almost guarantee that you won't have read anything quite like the Girl with Glass Feet by Ali Shaw, a young novelist who deserves more attention.
The Guardian review said of it 'Shaw has worded the great tradition of European fairy tales and come up with an ingenious story so deft it defies the obvious label "quirky" ...a magical fable of fate and resignation.'
Suitable for young adults and anyone bored out of their bonnet by samey genre fiction. His second novel, The Man who Rained, is also out and I have it on my must read pile.
If you can, buy the hardback edition, it is such a lovely book to hold.
