A Fish Trapped Inside the Wind

Christien Gholson
I must admit I was attracted to this book by its title and the cool artwork on the cover (do judge a book by its cover).  True to its unusual title, a small town in Belgium is experiencing an unusual phenomenon on the morning of Saint Woelfred’s festival  - dead fish are everywhere.  The once active quarries of the town will soon be used as toxic waste dumps.  Are the dead fish some kind of omen or a cruel trick?  Elements of fantasy and surrealism  are skillfully combined to narrate how six lives from this provincial town are changed forever.
