Reviewers’ comments:


Rachel Cusk – award-winning author of Saving Agnes and Arlington Park:

“Sonya is at her best in prose...It may be that this, in fact, is her voice: forlorn, frank, delicate.”

Jonathan Barnes – Freelance writer and author of Dracula’s Child and The City of Dr Moreau:

“Sonya has a real flair for language and of the use of unusual imagery in particular...Hers is a highly distinctive voice, full of promise.”

“Fluent, stylish and atmospheric writing.”
