Review

A book to remind us to treasure the gift of sound. (Laura Freeman Times 2017-05-06)

Fascinating ... Bathurst is a restless, curious writer, and she interweaves the story of her own experiences with imaginative research around hearing and sound ... After reading this book, I found myself listening in a richer and more interested way. (Alice O'Keeffe Guardian 2017-05-06)

This is a moving and fascinating book, all about sound and what it means to be human. It has its share of sound and fury, and benefits from a journalist's ability to listen. Many people with hearing loss, and more without, would benefit from hearing its message. (Katy Guest FT 2017-05-20)

A hymn to the faculty of hearing ... written with passion and intelligence ... a brave and important work (Rupert Christiansen Literary Review 2017-05-01)

An empathetic, sensitive look at how a physical loss can transform both the way you understand the world and how you live in it. (Charlotte Heathcote Sunday Express 2017-05-14)

An engaging blend of memoir, biography and history (Woman and Home 2017-06-08)

Fascinating and illuminating ... an eminently readable tour through the world of hearing loss that deserves a wide readership. (Liz Thomson The Arts Desk 2017-05-14)

Bathurst paints a vivid picture ... By writing this heartfelt book, she has helped to alleviate the sense of isolation (suffered by the deafened). (Ysenda Maxtone Graham Country Life 2017-05-24)

A poignant exploration ... terrific (Helen Brown Daily Telegraph 2017-05-27)

Praise for Bella Bathurst:
'Bella Bathurst has built a lamp herself: it illuminates the work of a literary hero, a family business, a habit of mind and a Scottish period ... from the summit of this first terrific book she looks to become one of the best biographers of her generation'

(Andrew O’Hagan The Times)

Book Description
