“This jewel of a book is made of beautifully linked narratives and timelines. Thelma Laycock’s prose is observant, nuanced and haunting. Her restraint and reticence puts one in mind of the ‘quiet inward exactitude’ found in the novels of Adalbert Stifter (The Recluse).
“Connecting North is essential reading for all those who pay attention to contemporary fiction.”
Penelope Shuttle, Poet and Novelist
