Mistakenly assuming that it would be heavy-going, I was saving Sara Baume’s debut for a time when I felt I could give it the attention that such a thoughtful book deserves. However, having found that time, it turned out to be the fastest read I’ve enjoyed in a while. Sara’s visceral prose, alive and relentless, hooked me in through this dark and heartfelt journey of a motherless man; a grieving man, and a one-eyed dog. If you are a reader, you’ll be a better reader for having read it. If you are a writer, you’ll be a better one for having read it. If you haven’t read it, do it.

I’ve been saving it too under the same assumption! Must get to it soon.
Such beautiful writing, Cathy – you will love it!
