  • I found Susannah’s book absolutely fascinating. She writes with admirable honesty and the result is a compelling and moving account of her mother’s life and relationships as told by the apocalyptic accumulation of "stuff" she left behind. Susannah’s book is not only a brave testament to an imperfect but precious relationship, but also a reflection on the similarities, however uncomfortable, between mother and daughter. It is a book I know I shall read again.

    Ruth Hogan, author of THE KEEPER OF LOST THINGS
  • A gripping read... a riveting piece of writing

    Saturday Review, BBC Radio 4
  • An excellent memoir... I finished this book in awe of the sheer interest to be had reading about ordinary people and their lives, but perhaps the point is that no life is ordinary; there is always treasure hidden in the rubbish if we look for it.

    Cathy Rentzenbrink, The Times
  • A moving memoir.

    Sunday Times
  • Beautifully written ... a powerfully evocative description of [Walker's] interest in the meaning of things.
