Reviews

"I was immediately enveloped in the staccato of little scratch, which spun between wry, funny and heartbreaking. It captures beautifully a rhythm not just of trauma, but also of the small, defiant, everyday happinesses that push through and against it." --Sophie Mackintosh, author of The Water Cure and Blue Ticket

"Witty, defiant, tender... what a book!"--Olivia Sudjic, author of Sympathy and Exposure

"Reads like the cinders settling in the air after an explosion... daring and completely readable."--Colin Barrett, author of Young Skins

"Rebecca Watson's little scratch voraciously captures our life... Watson uses language with a sniper's precision to target and capture the million little re-calibrations of the self that a young woman has to undertake in order to go from one day to the next. . . It is a story that is urgent. It is a story that needs to be told."--Meena Kandasamy, author of When I Hit You

"Confident and vital. . . little scratch is an absolute gift."--Naoise Dolan, author of Exciting Times
