Lídia Jorge //
The Wind Whistling in the Cranes, launched on 8th February by Liveright (Norton), has already received several excellent reviews.
“Jorge delivers a dose of near-contemporary history tempered by a page-turning family saga and romance.”
“Comparisons have already been drawn to Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels—and it’s not hard to see why with the book’s distinctive blend of social history and the most intimate of family sagas. But Jorge’s novel is very much its own thing, with a razor-sharp postcolonial subtext that asks deeper questions about whom we consider the outsider, and why.”
