about

"An intricate, finely crafted and polished tale, The Weeping Woman brings magic-realism to the dimly lit streets of Prague. Through the squares and alleys a woman walks, the embodiment of human pity, sorrow, death. Everyone she passes is touched by her, and Germain skilfully creates an intense mood and feel in her attempt to produce a spiritual map of Prague."The ObserverThe figure of this bereft woman develops into a memorable symbol: her sudden appearances - on a bridge,in a square, in a room - haunt the book like history, moved to tears."Robert Winder in The Independent"a haunting classic" Madeleine Kingsley in She Magazine

"Germain is sexy - in the stimulating, intriguing, provocative sense. The Weeping Woman, like Kieslowski's film Blue, is a book devoted to conjuring theme rather than plot. Plot emerges from theme, rather than the usual way round." -- Carole Morin in The Glasgow Herald
