‘Without my perception of it, the world cannot live.’ This truism lies at the heart of Miss Woo Country, a darkly comic, thoughtful and meticulously observant novel. Taking place in just one moment on an ordinary day in a care facility, the chair-bound narrator’s life has its being and then dies, but quietly and beautifully so and with a smile on its face.

“The personal service I received was superior. No query or problem was left unanswered or unattended.”

Nicholas King
