A Turtle’s Murder


A Turtle’s Murder is a complex, brooding story about the pathology of loss, which can create a proclivity to sado-masochistic psychological dynamics in later life. Its mood is dark and oppressive; the writing minimalist and careful. If you enjoy socio-political criticism that emerges from a finely-spun genealogy of resentment and hate, you will enjoy the titillations of this novella.
