“I didn’t move until I finished Dumb. It really reads like a thriller
– it’s so tense and the pace and information are controlled beautifully. Just
amazing.” – Olivia Laing
“Dumb is superb. Tough & delicate, together. Tangible sense of time and place. Moving symmetries. Mesmerising story-telling. I feel strongly that this book about silences needs to exist. It will speak to so many.” – Tanya Shadrick
“The story Carole wrote for Who Are We Now? is personal but with resonance for everybody, and sparely and elegantly written too! I did feel very moved by it.” – Katy Massey
“A very sound, mature and balanced work, which displays a highly developed self-awareness that serves the story and themes well. Beautifully judged, exquisitely written, and deeply moving.” – Clare Best
