Anmeldelser

«Moss has quietly, and it must be said remarkably quickly, been putting out some of the most interesting and carefully sculpted novels of recent years.»

Financial Times

«One of our very best contemporary novelists.»

Independent

«Moss’s star is firmly in the ascendant»

Guardian

«One of the finest contemporary writers working in Britain today»

Stylist

«A brilliant, confounding writer»

New Yorker

«A brilliant story of dysfunctional families»

The Times

«Sharp, searching, thoroughly imagined, it is utterly of the moment, placing its anxious human dots against a vast indifferent landscape; with its wit and verve and beautiful organisation it throws much contemporary writing into the shade!»

Hilary Mantel, Man Booker winning author of<i> Wolf Hall</i>

«Nothing escapes her sly humour and brilliant touch. Deft and brimming with life, Summerwater is a novel of endless depth. A masterpiece.»

Jessie Burton, author of <i>The Miniaturist</i>

«This novel - about crisis and isolation in its own ways - moved and encouraged me in difficult times. Another deft, sensitive, crystalline book by Sarah Moss; I loved it.»

Megan Hunter, author of <i>The End We Start From</i>

«A masterful and immerse exercise in tension; here are the many conflicting voices of modern Britain in microcosm. Sarah Moss reminds us that society is only ever two short steps away from collapse.»

Benjamin Myers, author of <i>The Offing</i>

«For more than a decade, Sarah Moss has been crafting quiet, complex novels that make an indelible impression on the reader. This is one of her best, and most accessible, and should bring her work to a wider audience.»

Irish Times

«I read this brilliant novel in one greedy gulp. Sarah Moss is an acute observer of modern life and puts humanity on the page with deep understanding and wit.»

Cathy Rentzenbrink, author of <i>The Last Act of Love </i>

«With delicate precision, Summerwater takes the moral and emotional temperature of a whole society. It is matchless, too, in its blending of steely insight with humour and compassion.»

Pankaj Mishra, author of <i>The Age of Anger</i>

«Moss is the most brilliant writer. She deserves to win all the prizes.»

Joanna Trollope, author of <i>City of Friends</i>

«Moss’s ability to conjure up the fleeting and sometimes agonised tenderness of family life is unmatched . . . there is an artfulness to her writing so accomplished as to conceal itself.»

Melissa Harrison, <i>Guardian</i>

«Summerwater is a triumph and confirms Sarah Moss as one of the best writers at work in Britain today.»

Fiona Mozley, author of <i>Elmet</i>

«Summerwater is a beautiful book, written with delicacy and grace, yet with an undertow as dark as the Scottish loch by which its characters are holidaying in ignorance of the tragedy to come. If you are a huge fan of Moss's work, as I am, you will find yourself parceling it out, to read a chapter a day, like a gift.»

Louise Doughty, author of <i>Apple Tree Yard</i>
