"heroically ordinary"

Financial Times

"De Waal inspired the formation of a collective of working-class writers, after her "powerful call-to-arms" in a BBC Radio 4 documentary where she pushed for more of those voices to be represented in literature."

The Bookseller

"De Waal excels at bringing out the humanity of characters leading small lives on the fringe of huge social and political forces, struggling bravely not to be crushed by them."
