Fiction - Novels
Shark's Egg marks Henrietta Rose-Innes's debut as a novelist. The novel is as fresh and vital as the sea itself - and as menacing. It tells of a young woman's loss, and ultimate reclamation, of a childhood sense of freedom and self-worth as it traces her experiences through high school, an abortive university fine-arts degree, an unconventional relationship with a handy-man and a complicated friendship with a former schoolmate.
