 A Quiet Life

'A tour de force,' Linda Grant

'Impressive and rewarding,' The Daily Mail

'Quietly impressive...As well as having a gift for cool, elegant phrasing, and a fine sensitivity to psychology reminiscent of Elizabeth Jane Howard, Walter proves to be a hardworking and accomplished storyteller. The scene in which Laura must steal, photograph and return documents from under the noses of both her husband and cousin is breathtaking... Walter is terrific, too, at capturing the tense, bleached-out dreariness of the cold war in London and Washington, easily competing with the claims of such experienced novelists as Sebastian Faulks and William Boyd to the territory, and bringing to it a unique perspective that resonates long after the novel is laid down.' Christobel Kent, The Guardian

'Riveting,' Good Housekeeping

'Exquisitely detailed,' Red magazine

 

Living DollsLiving Dolls: The Return of Sexism by Natasha Walter

'A must-read' The Guardian

“This is an important book... Walter has started a discussion that needs to take place not just between women, but between all of us,” Sarah Vine, The Times

“Living Dolls, written with a spare and spirited elegance, has particular weight... I am wholly convinced: the sooner we all take on this battle, the better.” Melissa Benn, The Independent

“The coolly devastating precision of her second book, Living Dolls: the Return of Sexism, is all the more potent for its patient description of a viciously misogynistic culture.... a call to revolution that kicks Nuts magazine right in the nuts,” Bidisha, The New Statesman

“It is when focusing on our hypersexualised culture that Walter truly shines.... a wonderfully written, fantastically reported book,” Jessica Valenti, The Observer

“Elegant and thought-provoking” Antonia Senior, The Times

“Required reading for everyone who cares about our humanity, and that means all of us,” Kathy Sheridan, The Irish Times

“Natasha Walter's gripping new book, Living Dolls: The Return of Sexism... does a wonderful job of bringing into sharp focus a sea change that's been creeping up on us over the past decade,” Amy Jenkins, The Independent

“Excellent” Allison Pearson, The Daily Mail
