Reviews

Destined to be a 21st century classic. Just brilliant.’
John Lewis-Stempel, author of The Running Hare

‘A marvellous evocation of the Suffolk coast. It made me want to jump on the next train out of London.’
Andrew Gimson, author of Gimson’s Kings & Queens

‘[Juliet] creates a world full of people and poetry, which we must fight to keep forever… the whole book is both touching and often very funny, and I loved the monthly food lists.’
Jilly Cooper, author of The Rutshire Chronicles

‘Brilliant memoir about nature, landscape, food and the disconnect between town and country.’
India Knight, The Sunday Times

‘ A wonderful book by an extraordinary woman.’
i Newspaper

‘Even when it has all been swallowed by the sea, the art [the Suffolk landscape] has helped create will survive – and Blaxland’s book deserves a distinguished place in that company.’
The Telegraph

‘I feel like a stalker, but reading Juliet Blaxland’s The Easternmost House, I got straight into my car and drove over to stare at her home. Her wonderful book describes living on the most extreme outpost of Suffolk’s coast of erosion.’
Janice Turner, The Times

‘The author writes beautifully about her life in this small extremity… a hymn to a simpler life, one lived more in tune with the rhythms of the natural world, with its wonders and its perils.’
Country Life

‘Even when it is engulfed by the sea, Blaxland’s stunning memoir will ensure her home’s memory is preserved.’
Book of the week, The Courier

‘Prose that flows effortlessly with a wry turn of phrase at every corner. Plus, she’s bloody funny. In The Easternmost House you read the sound of her voice, and so the book rattles along like a good’un. ’
Caught by the River
