With grace, beauty and true grit, Eliza Robertson makes the familiar shockingly and blindingly fresh, like the world after a cleansing rain * Zsuzsi Gartner, author of Better Living Through Plastic Explosives *
Wonderfully weird ... beautifully written * Elle Canada *
Captivating ... Amid the catastrophe, there is a delicate beauty in the details Robertson selects * Scotland on Sunday *
Confirms her as a significant new talent ... The ordinary and everyday become imbued with a strange significance, albeit with a feather-light touch; Robertson's prose is never weighed down, even as it imparts a sense of uneasiness, anticipation ... Robertson lets images vibrate with possibilities. Almost every story, individually, is sharp, illuminating * Independent on Sunday *
An unsettling debut collection of short stories * Mail on Sunday *
Robertson is often thus adventurous when it comes to her structures ... It's the richness of her prose that draws one in * Independent *
Her stories display a startlingly original way of looking at the world, finding magic and mystery in ordinary life ... An exciting new voice in short fiction * The Lady *
The stories in Eliza Robertson's first collection are filled with lush flora and fauna, both real and figurative ... Assured and ambitious * Guardian *
Wallflowers is perfect for dipping in and out of, like a bag of pick `n' mix; the stories have varied settings and the narrators are all snappingly distinct. And like pick `n' mix, it's difficult to stop after just one -- Sara Taylor * Metro, 'On my e-reader' *
A young writer who succeeds in imagining the world afresh * Independent *
