Sarah Moss is one of our country's most underrated writers... [Signs for Lost Children is] full of humanity, historical insight and beautiful writing... If there is one author you take a chance on this year, let it be her - it's time, and money, well spent
Fiona Wilson, The Times
Quietly devastating... These lateral portraits of disillusionment are excellently rendered. Tom's journey is external and exotic ... [and] is beautifully delivered (Moss is an effortlessly elegant writer), but in the end it is Ally's internal odyssey that grips... A compelling, often harrowing, occasionally heartbreaking read
Sarah Crown, Guardian
Stunning... the richness of Moss's work is astonishing. Few writers demonstrate such quietly magisterial command of the rocky territories of both the heart and mind
