A worthy match for 3 a.m. disquiet, a book that evokes existential dread, but contains it, beautifully, like a shipwreck in a bottle * New Yorker *

I'm a great fan of Sarah Moss's work; she combines poetic sensibility with great storytelling... Moss is brilliant on atmosphere -- John Boyne * Metro *
I love this book. Ghost Wall requires you to put your life on hold while you finish it. It draws you into its unusual world and, with quiet power and menace, keeps you there until the very last page. Silvie's story isn't one you will ever forget -- Maggie O'Farrell
This book ratcheted the breath out of me so skilfully, that as soon as I'd finished, the only thing I wanted was to read it again -- Jessie Burton, author * The Miniaturist *
Ghost Wall grabs you by the guts and never lets go. Dazzling -- Elizabeth Day
Eerie and gripping * Bookseller *
Stunningly good... Over a staggeringly short distance Moss creates and manipulates an atmosphere of extreme tension... As the story edges towards its climax, Moss appears to collapse layers of history, to render skin and knife and rope identical across millennia * Observer *

A coming-of-age story with rare power and startling depth * In the Moment *

An unnerving indictment of misogyny... pitch-perfect -- Best Books of the Year(chosen by Hirsh Sawhney) * TLS *
Ghost Wall by Sarah Moss makes me sad for England, now that Brexit is near...it is true to some idea of England - of landscape, tradition and deep history - which is being clawed back, by these writers, from English nationalism -- Best Books of the Year (chosen by Anne Enright) * Irish Times *
I loved it -- Best books of 2019 (chosen by Bernadine Evaristo) * Observer *
Gosh it's so good, and Moss is the most brilliant writer. She deserves to win all the prizes * i paper *
