'The must-read memoir. A moving, bruising and meditative memoir and love story ... Beautifully written, The Elements, will strike a chord with anyone who's been touched by grief.' * Red Magazine *
'A staggering book. Kat writes with such hypnotic lyricism.' -- Terri White
'It is not just one of the most beautiful books I've ever read, exploring grief through the elements of the cosmos, it is the only book I've read that has made me feel less alone. A must read even if it's not your own experience.' -- Poorna Bell
'A stunning and immersive examination of grief; of making a new future; the body as a site of "wrongness" and "re-entry" after bereavement ... it veers from melancholy to rage and joy.' -- Sinead Gleeson
'Strikingly honest' -- Sarah Ditum * The Times *
'It knocked me for six: the honesty in it, the frankness, the detail, the research, the feeling, and such stunning writing ... it's not just about losing someone. It's about rebuilding.' -- Jude Rogers
'The writing will make you stop to catch your breath, it's hopeful in ways you won't expect at all, and the smallest moments will break your heart.' -- Sian Meades-Williams
'It is lyrical. It is wise. It is physical in its longing ... Destined to become a classic. The Elements is a gift; not so much a map but a compass, to a landscape we long not to visit but many of us do.' -- Sam Baker
Brilliant, beautiful, moving. -- The Anchoress
'Such a searingly honest book that will stop you cold with its beauty. Kat's unique voice and perspective on death, love and womanhood really get under your skin. This is a book about grief but it's also about finding a sense of self after a deep loss, and hoping above everything for something wonderful that feels very much like joy.' * Tigers Are Better Looking *
