  • Haunting, historical, archival and imaginative... a stunning debut

    Bernardine Evaristo, New Statesman, Books of the Year
  • Surge is a radical hybrid, painfully beautiful multigenerational ghost story, a social document, and a work of political archaeology. It is an indictment of this country's systemic hostility to its black, Asian and ethnic minority population, and the scandalous lack of accountability when this system claims lives. It is a heartbreaking and brilliant book about an ongoing tragedy

    Max Porter, Guardian, *Books of the Year*
  • Politically and lyrically compelling

    Raymond Antrobus, Observer, *Books of the Year*
  • Sensitive but devastating verse

    Financial Times, *Summer Reads of 2019*
  • A searing combination of artistic invention and meticulous research into the 1981 New Cross Fire

    Pascale Petit, *RSL Ondaatje Prize*
