"Caroline Hardaker's debut poetry pamphlet is a triumph of contemporary myth-making."
"an unapologetic, intimate tale of our shared human fragility, and the deceptions we employ to keep from breaking."
"The writing is wistful and works in such a way you don't realise how wonderfully strange the book is until you are enfolded in it."
"As thought-provoking as it is chilling."
"Explores what constitutes love, how to build a life when a lot we take for granted is missing, and what it takes to 'glue together a splitting world.'"
"A delicate and terrifying prospect of our future, with the most lovable creatures."
"Creepy and enthralling, Hardaker's superbly written debut will drip feed you dread from beginning to end."
"A thought-provoking dystopian debut which continuously questions what it truly means to be alive."
"A story you won't forget in a hurry (try as you might) and an exceptional debut novel."
