Reviews

A brooding study of family and belonging * Daily Telegraph *


A fantastic, taught, very strange novel * BBC Radio 4, Front Row * A brooding study of family and belonging * Daily Telegraph *


An impressive slice of contemporary noir steeped in Yorkshire legend . . . Elmet possesses a rich and unfussy lyricism * Guardian * The scattered moments of raw talent are arresting * The Times * Ms Mozley writes with clarity and insight, and her descriptions of the natural world and human relationships are both specific and profound . . . Elmet is a quiet explosion of a book, exquisite and unforgettable. It is hard not to feel that at 29, Ms Mozley has only just begun * The Economist * A stunning debut . . . It may be the best thing about the Booker too despite its oddness, or perhaps because of it . . . Elmet is in so many ways a wonder to behold. It is also this year's David among the predictable Goliaths on the Booker list. How thrilling if David were to win against them * Evening Standard * A fantastic, taught, very strange novel * BBC Radio 4, Front Row * A brooding study of family and belonging * Daily Telegraph *
