Reviews

'An extraordinary, electrifying book about loss, chaos, addiction and death, and the wild work of staying tender in the face of it' - OLIVIA LAING

'The intelligence of the writing is a kind of grace in itself - light and deep and beautiful' - DEBORAH LEVY

'This Ragged Grace examines the fragility of the self in exquisite detail. Generous, compelling, poignant and ultimately, life affirming; Bright has managed to capture the complexity of being human' - HEIDI JAMES

'A truly enlightening read: poetic, courageous and surprising. Beautiful, intelligent prose and such a brave journey into art, family and the deep structures of an addictive personality. On top of that This Ragged Grace is a love letter to the sea and the wisdom we share with it. I loved it' - DORTHE NORS
