If your recent reading has been mediocre then here is a cracking story to restore your faith in books.Half Wild is an utterly absorbing fictionalisation of the fascinating 'lives' of convicted murderer Eugenia Falleni.  

Pip Smith's lyrical, hypnotic, rousing writing is the perfect match for such a piquant personality, so at no point can you look away! Yet this is a story of great pathos and poignancy, devastating at times, told with delicacy and rare perception. It is an unforgettable meditation on the nature of identity. A remarkably beautiful novel
from  an award-winning author.
