Tartly humorous, sad and clever ... a passionately written meditation on motherhood, with all the monotony, desperation and visceral feelings faithfully recorded - Elizabeth Buchan, "Sunday Times"
Moss writes marvellously (and often hilariously) about the clash between career and motherhood. Allison Pearson for intellectuals -"The Times"
Fresh and illuminating... [Sarah] Moss is a wry, winning guide - G"uardian"
Highly enjoyable... The upbeat conclusion to this blend of middle-class satire, historical fiction and campus novel does not soften Moss's withering take on sexism and her stark view of motherhood - "Daily Telegraph"
An original and accomplished novel - D"aily Mail"
Sarah Moss's debut, Cold Earth, was a stylish thriller set on a remote archaeological dig in Greenland. Here she takes the emotional isolation of early parenthood as her subject, intensifying the experience by transplanting a young family to a remote Scottish island ... In her previous book, a character noted that there was ""some peace in having a kind of room of my own, even if it is a grave."" This latest work explores the concept further with some startling results' -" Independent"
Sarah Moss weaves in perceptions about motherhood, attitudes to children and attempts to improve the world... she demonstrates that she can handle a darkly comic narrative with the best of them - although Night Waking is much more than that - "Metro"
Witty with dark humour ... Moss manages to wave the threads together quite expertly at the end -" Herald""
