'Genius... personal, poetic and truthful. [It] reads as light as a souffle, yet also has the resonant depth to haunt you for the rest of your days.' GuardianInto the Silent Land marks the debut of an astonishing new voice.

Independent on Sunday'A beautifully written addition to brain literature... will mesmerise anyone curious about the mass of goo inside our heads.'
