  • A visual memoir with beautifully drawn illustrations by Joe Sumner.

    Danuta Kean, Independent on Sunday
  • Its minute observations and most unsettling moments stayed with me, like a shark tooth kept in a pocket, a souvenir of someone else’s life.

    Charlotte Runcie, 4 stars, Telegraph
  • It is remarkable how an autobiographical – I stress this – book can enact a movement away from the self and become the repository of so much humility.

    Neel Mukherjee, Independent
  • Wyld tells the story of her obsession and fascination with the shark, and charts the undercurrents, tensions and joys of family life. Model-maker Joe Sumner’s illustrations, full of tension and grace, are a haunting accompaniment.

    Louise Gorrod, Simple Things
  • Sumner’s wondrous art is a perfect visual correlative to Wyld’s spare lyricism.
