This is an auction for THE OTHER HAND by Chris Cleave.

"Chris Cleave's Little Bee works because the unflinching, brutal story balances an outwardly political motive with rich, deep character development (and even some welcome humour), focusing narrowly on events before broadening to reveal some larger truths.

Cleave's sophomore effort is, as the Chicago Sun-Times succinctly put it, "a loud shout of talent"."

Sales were initially slow, but increased as a result of "word-of-mouth" publicity, with the book eventually ranking 13th on the 2009 Sunday Times bestseller list.
