Reviews

  • Supple and taut, brutal and delicate, Woman At Sea pulled me about with the tug and thrust of an ocean-storm. The roars gave way to calm spells, though, so intensely beautiful I thought them made by magic. With whip-crackingly smart dialogue, and prose as clean as a sea-breeze, this book is delightfully, heartstoppingly frank. I devoured it, and will be pressing it on everyone I know.

    Elanor Dymott, author of EVERY CONTACT LEAVES A TRACE and SILVER AND SALT
  • Vividly evoked… Poulain’s visceral account of what it’s like to live such a heightened existence is gripping.

    Herald Scotland, *Best Paperbacks of the Year*
  • A vivid account of hard graft in treacherous conditions ... The salt-stung pages practically reek of the cod that the 30-something narrator, Lili, spends her days gutting, as she wins over a gruff crew doubtful she can earn her keep.

    Anthony Cummins, Daily Mail
  • Poulain’s enthralling book… is utterly compelling. Like a tiny, vibrant dart hurled into an immensity of sea and sky, Lili commands attention throughout.

    Davina Langdale, Literary Review
  • A debut novel of dazzling beauty.
