  • Slack-Tide, Elanor Dymott's captivating third novel, is sharp in many ways… [it’s] so convincingly – and, at times, so disastrously – funny… But what makes Slack-Tide distinct is its brilliant depiction of both romantic rapture and heartfelt delusion.

  • Dymott writes particularly well on sex, and is refreshingly comfortable with the ambiguities at play in each encounter. This psychologically intelligent study... packs a very precise punch.
