Clay moves to rhythms that we associate less with fiction than with the close-descriptive style of nature writers such as Robert Macfarlane ... At the heart of Clay is a hymn to attentiveness, both to the natural world and to those we share it with * Financial Times *
Instantly beautiful in its calm and wise tone * Robert Macfarlane *
Heartfelt, elegaic ... Lovingly observed * Sunday Times *
The wonderful power of her looking builds a quiet, cumulative poetry. An impressive debut * Mark Cocker, author of Crow Country *
Fierce and tender ... Country come to town with lyrical, visceral power ... She evokes with rhapsodic delight the animal and plant life that still flourishes amid the concrete and Tarmac * Boyd Tonkin, Independent *
Harrison gives lovely expression to her vision of an ecosystem thrumming away beneath the grime of city life * Guardian *
