  • Unlike any book I've ever read... Carrère is anything but ordinary as a talent, but his great and precious gift is to reveal his own mind in such a way that illuminates the infinity that belongs to every human person.

    Megan Nolan, author of ACTS OF DESPERATION
  • Completely arresting. He [Carrère] has the talent...of showing us his foibles without demanding that we identify with them.

  • Yoga is the story of how a life can fray, tighten itself into a noose, unravel and, in the process, be built and braided into lines that make up a profound and moving work of art

    Geoff Dyer
  • Stunning...Yoga is a deeply moving reflection on the painful occupation that is living.

  • I loved Emmanuel Carrère's Yoga... A useful manual for this era, where nothing seems connected but everything's related.

    Adam Thirlwell, Times Literary Supplement *Books of the Year*
  • Impressive... reveals itself as a monumental book on the human condition.

  • How does one harmonise the yin and yang of a life broken in two? Yoga is the implacable tale of a writer lost in his kingdom.

  • A devastating portrait...[Carrère's] singular, ever-expanding work, in which one pain need never obscure another, in which truths and half-truths are held not in opposition but in delicate, precarious balance, is an answer in itself.

    Sam Byers, Guardian
  • The most exciting living writer.

    Karl Ove Knausgaard
