The Deeper the Water the Uglier the Fish is brilliantly structured, with multiple characters narrating the events of the novel. It’s an unusual technique that Apekina uses to stunning effect, creating a kind of narrative tension that propels the novel forward... The structure, characters and storyline are all refreshingly original, and the writing is nothing short of gorgeous. It’s a stunningly accomplished book, and Apekina isn’t afraid to grab her readers by the hand and take them to some very dark and very beautiful places.
