  • It's a novel that contrives to be, by turns, utopian and dystopian, an idyll and a nightmare... Every joint and sinew of the story is restless with a sense of threat

    Nicholas Spice, London Review of Books
  • Brilliant in its sustainment of dread, in its peeling away of old layers of reality to expose a raw way of seeing and feeling. Doris Lessing once remarked that only a woman could have written this novel, and it's true: I know of no closer study in claustrophobia and liberation, and of an independence whose severity is at once ecstatic and doomed. I've read The Wall three times already and am nowhere near finished

  • It makes you sick, because, if she wasn't a woman, everyone would be reading it, like Robinson Crusoe

    Sheila Heti, Guardian
