"An enticing amalgam of Downtown Abbey and Wuthering Heights... Truly memorable...immensely poignant...deeply sensitive." -- Melissa Katsoulis * The Times *
"A haunting debut... Ever since John Fowles' The French Lieutenant's Woman and especially AS Byatt's Possession, there has been a vogue for novels that alternate between the Victorian age and our own. Nothing But Grass is a cracking addition to this genre." -- David Grylls * Sunday Times *
"Thrilling... combines the social engagement of David Peace with Robert Macfarlane's talent for describing the countryside in crisp, fresh language. From ghosts of the Civil War to the meaning of the miners' strike, this is a beguiling tale about a rural England where questions of power and identity are as pertinent now as they ever were." -- Max Liu * Independent *
"Cohu skilfully builds a narrative that reveals the reverberations of the Victorian past - and an enduring mystery - upon the present. He subtly details his characters' feelings, and though the consequences are tragic, they prove fertile material for fine fiction." -- Anita Sethi * Mail on Sunday *
