• Provocative and profoundly personal . . . it's hard to overestimate the riskiness of these passages, their courage and their exquisite sensuality . . . Unmastered is a giddily joyful book . . . days after reading its images linger in the mind . . . an elegant and uplifting journey

    Olivia Laing, Observer
  • Unmastered is written with an honesty so defiantly pure it amounts to an act of cultural resistance

    Adam Foulds, author of the Booker Prize-shortlisted The Quickening Maze
  • I think the highest compliment you can pay any book is that it is unafraid. Angel's fiercely intelligent and moving memoir of sexuality and desire is a challenging, vital work

    Sam Byers, Best Books of 2012, Book Keeping
  • A moving and memorable read
