'Cements her reputation as one of the most fierce and elegant chroniclers of how we live now.' Stephanie Merritt, Observer

Coventry is a collection of essays about choices, womanhood and art. Encompassing memoir and cultural and literary criticism, with pieces on gender, politics and writers such as D. H. Lawrence, Olivia Manning and Natalia Ginzburg, it is essential reading for our age: fearless, unrepentantly erudite, both startling and rewarding to behold.

Rachel Cusk is always an exciting writer: striking and challenging, with a distinctive cool prose voice, and behind that coolness something untamed and full of raw force . . .
Tessa Hadley

Cusk has glimpsed the central truth of modern life . . . She moves through it as a blasted centre full only of instinct and superhuman hearing and hackles.
Patricia Lockwood

Fiercely intelligent, with enviable prose that is at once luminous and precise.
New Statesman - Kathryn Maris

Brilliant . . . Cusk's voice is as original as ever.
Evening Standard - Claire Harman

The word that keeps coming to mind is "formidable". It describes her intelligence in writing about everything from literature to parenthood.
Irish Times - Alan Simpson

Cusk is a master of the genre and her collection of sharp, provocative essays had me transfixed.
