Praise for Our Fathers

"A piercing, vivid, and humane story depicting the long aftermath of extreme domestic violence." --Kirkus Reviews

"This is a beautifully realised novel, touching on the fallibility of memory and the unknowability of families, and gripping in its intensity. Outstanding." --Daily Mail

"Thoughtful and wrenching." --Publishers Weekly

Praise for Rebecca Wait's The Followers

"A restrained tour-de-force, profoundly unsettling, brilliantly executed, and deeply humane." --EMILY ST. JOHN MANDEL, author of Station Eleven

"Smooth and magnetic . . . The translucent simplicity of Wait's prose lends a crystalline quality to the scenes, whether humdrum, horrific or, ultimately, healing." --Kirkus Reviews

"This novel lingers with you, and for those who have suffered similar things, it echoes truth." --Matt Haig, The Guardian

"The tenderness and the transformative nature of the ending are truly moving." --The Independent

"Rebecca Wait describes the world of The Followers with such vividness that I dreamt about her cold, misty moorland, and with such tenderness that the ending brought tears to my eyes." --Alison Moore, Man Booker Prize-shortlisted author of The Lighthouse

"The novel has a brooding tension that threatens no good to come, building to a page-turning finish." --John Harding, author of Florence & Giles
