Our Curators said...

To journey through this novel is an other-worldly experience. I loved the confident move from everyday to extraordinary as the novel progresses; and the tenderness with which the story is depicted is really rather breath-taking.

What the Critics are Saying

'A wonderful novel, deeply romantic and fabulously strange. I loved this book.'

Sarah Waters

'A strange, unnerving novel that wrongfoots you at every turn and invites you to think again about loss, absence, and transformation, Our Wives Under The Sea also returns wholly original answers to that great question, 'Where did we come from, where are we going?' It is a beautiful, lyrically written elegy.'

Neel Mukherjee

'Julia Armfield is one of my favourite writers, Our Wives Under The Sea moves fluidly between horror story and love story, the gorgeous and the grotesque. A contemporary gothic fairy tale, sublime in its creepiness.'

Florence Welch
