Reviews

Woof is a storyteller and you can tell this from the first few pages. "The Times"
Woof finds humour and poignancy in the gulf between how things are and how they ought to be. "The Observer"
Woof s lyrical storytelling moves effectively through time and place, interweaving Ursula and Jerry s futures as well as what came before them ... the result is transcendent. What unfolds is a story not just of young love but of how to cope when it is lost and shattered. "Financial Times"
[An] indubitable talent. "The Guardian"
An unusual but convincing love story that charts the often-distant lives of her two distinctive and appealing characters, written with wit and a lyrical flourish. "Daily Mail""

Kirkus Reviews
Woof promises to reveal love in all its forms, a grand ambition not quite achieved. But she succeeds in conveying the infinity of moments that make up a lifetime.
