  • Her writing is beautiful. I am sure I'll see her name on the spine of many a novel to come

    Rachel Sieffert, author of the Booker-shortlisted 'The Dark Room'
  • Sauma's writing is sensual and evocative. Flesh and Bone and Water is a powerful depiction of sexual attraction and long lost loves; a haunting weave of Rio, the Amazon and present-day London

    Ardashir Vakil, award-winning author of 'Beach Boy'
  • Luiza Sauma's debut novel is that rare thing: a completely absorbing, brilliantly-designed, literary work. Her ability to cut across time and continents and to inhabit the physical and inner life of both a young Brazilian and that same man in middle-age is as dazzling as the novel's plot. The reveal, when it comes, is astonishing-sensuous, shocking, and completely earned.

    Anita Shreve, New York Times bestselling author of The Pilot’s Wife
  • Luiza Sauma's first novel, Flesh and Bone and Water, is lush and evocative. The secret at the center came as a shocking surprise, and the characters were as haunted as I was. Sip a caipirinha and enjoy

  • I devoured this stunning debut by Luiza Sauma. An immersive, heartbreaking coming of age story. Beg, borrow or steal a copy

    Susie Steiner, author of 'Missing, Presumed'
