Reviews

  • Seethingly assured ... odd and muscular enough to resist easy interpretation. It can be read on many levels – as a fable about female yearning, or about containment and contagion; as an investigation into toxic relationships or a puzzle over the borders between human and non-human – but it is always singularly and entirely itself

    GUARDIAN
  • Enthralling . . . Lyrical, dark and detailed, the story twists like a root, bent in one way by desire, in another by fate.

    Daily Mail
  • Impressive . . . Rainsford is a writer to watch.

    Metro
  • A tangled, gnarled, wonderfully original, strange, beautiful beast of a book

    DAISY JOHNSON
  • Rainsford writes beautifully with a lyrical, earthy prose which is evocative and eviscerating yet mesmerising. She gives Ada a unique voice which fills and haunts the narrative. One of the strangest books I've read in a long time, it is utterly compelling and will linger, uninvited, in your consciousness long after you've turned the last page.
