A village, an island, a whole world: Karen Köhler’s first novel catapults us straight into the thoughts of a young woman who grows up as a foundling in a sheltered community. Here, the men are in charge, women are not allowed to read, and tradition and sacred laws weigh on everyone.

What happens to an outsider in a village like this if you break all the rules? When you learn to read in secret, make friends and allies, fall in love and at long, long last get a name? Full of zeal, curiosity and rage at the state of things, Miroloi tells the story of a young woman who revolts against her environment to find freedom.

This sparkling, sophisticated book feels as if it could be set in any time or place. A major novel, which dazzles and shines with detail – and the moving story of a life lived not far from where we are.
