Sarah Hall
"Wonderful. Sarah Hall manages to infuse a whole novel with the intensity of one of her stories. The writing goes down smoking hot onto the page. Above all, it is the feeling of all this coming out of the writer's depths that makes it so compelling. This will be among the very best of pandemic books."
