A visual memoir with beautifully drawn illustrations by Joe Sumner.
-- Danuta Kean * Independent on Sunday *
Its minute observations and most unsettling moments stayed with me, like a shark tooth kept in a pocket, a souvenir of someone else's life. -- Charlotte Runcie, 4 stars * Telegraph *
It is remarkable how an autobiographical - I stress this - book can enact a movement away from the self and become the repository of so much humility. -- Neel Mukherjee * Independent *
Wyld tells the story of her obsession and fascination with the shark, and charts the undercurrents, tensions and joys of family life. Model-maker Joe Sumner's illustrations, full of tension and grace, are a haunting accompaniment. -- Louise Gorrod * Simple Things *
Sumner's wondrous art is a perfect visual correlative to Wyld's spare lyricism. * i *
