Reviews

truly remarkable... Searingly honest... This book carries its readers to a place where inhibitions and fears about loss and death give way to something more hopefully and, in their own way, real -- Peter Stanford * Daily Telegraph *
Moving, challenging and hauntingly beautiful... This exquisite book chronicles the quest to process a grief that can never end. This is one I shall return to again and again * Daily Mail *
This is a beautiful book, a remarkable, cadenced recollection of how grief lives in the body. It is poetry as a kind of dance. You have to read it -- Edmund de Waal

Everything in Sleeping Letters tastes and smells of the authentic life. It's a living example of what both religion and - especially in Jung's wise hands - psychology are supposed to do and be. This tiny book is an enormous lesson in finding the sacred through our suffering, in always trusting the impossible, in remembering how to write and read while asleep

-- Peter Kingsley, author of Catafalque and In the Dark Places of Wisdom
