What the Critics are Saying

'An assured debut from a vital new voice. About family, grief and belonging, Patel weaves an intricate story that will stay with you.'

Nikesh Shukla

'Incredibly moving, this is an immersive novel focusing on grief but also love and relationships. I fell in love with Avani and Nik, characters so real I could hardly believe they're fictional. Jyoti Patel is a hugely exciting new writer.'
