Hours from now, Rachel Massey will become a mother. Terrified and excited, there is nothing she wants more. But motherhood is not as she had imagined. The sleepless nights turn to weeks, the weeks to months, and while Rachel loves her son as much as any mother, she can't escape the feeling that something has gone terribly wrong. Honest, uplifting and often shocking, Go To Sleep is a powerful and heart-wrenching story.

MEDIA REVIEWS
One of the more unusual, urgent young voices writing in Britain today, and very much of today's Britain, Walsh boldly confronts contemporary life, and her latest novel is a combustible combination of raw emotion and deep compassion * * Independent on Sunday * *
A brave and uncompromising novel that absolutely needed to be written * * dovegreyreader * *
Walsh is wonderfully in control of her world. Rachel's frenzied fatigue - which spirals rapidly and exponentially out of control - seeps off the novel's pages, inexorably carrying you along on her sleep-deprived journey. And you want to go along: Walsh is so terrific at making Rachel's universe immediate and vivid that you stay, immersed and riveted . . . A book reflective of life itself * * Independent on Sunday * *
Walsh has a real way with words * * Herald * *
Compelling, unflinching and significant...invested with humour and colour * * The List * *
A more mature, but still hard hitting book.. powerfully told. -- Doug Johnstone * * Big Issue * *
There will be lots here that is depressingly familiar to new parents. Walsh is particularly strong on that strung out narcotic hungover feeling of what life is like with too little sleep. * * Bookmunch * *

“Brutal and Honest - A must read!”

Rachel's story is so real that I could have actually been living it myself! Reading about Rachel took me straight back to my memories of finding out I was pregnant and facing life as a single parent.
