The Butterfly Month by Ariella Kornmehl, translated from Dutch by Faith Hunter, published by Scribe Publications 2007

  • “Modernist in style and structure, the writing is taut and sparse … refreshing reading.” Justine Ettler in The Weekend Australian
  • ‘Kornmehl captures the cruel reality of life in Johannesburg and paints a poignant and believable friendship.’ Claire Scobie in the Sydney Morning Herald.
  • Describing the novel as a “skilfully carved” tragedy Cameron Woodhead adds that “Kornmehl writes in terse fragments of lives and nations broken. The moments of freedom are fleeting but beautifully rendered.” in his review in The Weekend Age (November 2008)
