  • Like Ali Smith’s novels crossed with the TV series Fleabag… [The Bass Rock is] a vividly imagined portrait… There’s much to admire in its little miracles of observation… [Evie Wyld] knows how to maintain suspense, what to withhold and when to reveal it — right up to the spine-chilling last line.

    Johanna Thomas-Corr, Sunday Times
  • A multilayered masterpiece; vivid, chilling, leaping jubilantly through space and time, it’s a jaw dropping novel that confirms Wyld as one of our most gifted young writers.

    Alex Preston, Observer
  • Wondrous... Expertly chilling... Wyld consistently entertains, juggling the pleasures of several different genres.

    John Williams, New York Times
  • Searingly controlledpsychologically fearless andbitterly funny. Wyld is a genius of contrasting voices and revealed connections, while her foreshadowings are so subtle that the book demands – and eminently repays – a second read.

    Justine Jordan, Guardian
  • A rising star of British fictionWyld’s slow, controlled build-up of dread is excellent… Most powerful of all is Wyld’s evocation of a hairs-on-the-neck sense of foreboding when women interact with volatile men.

    Francesca Carington, Sunday Telegraph, *Novel of the Week*
