My review of The Cry by Helen FitzGerald in The Independent on Sunday


Here’s my review of Helen FitzGerald’s The Cry, easily one of my favourite novels this year. It’s fucking terrifying. It’s so terrifying I was describing it to another writer in the pub recently, just telling them what happens in it, and they refused to listen anymore, it was too much for them.

Reviewing this book also threw up some interesting issues about spoilers in reviews, but I’ve hopefully trodden the line carefully in the copy. Great book, anyhoo, do track it down.
