And the Stones Cry Out

«I love any book that teaches me how to love better, deeper. This is what I felt Clara Dupont-Monod's And The Stones Cry Out taught me. Clara's sentences are tender and illuminating, they carefully guided me along a complex family story, like stones skimming on water. The book reminded me of just how connected we are, whether we are a sibling, a stranger, or a stone bearing witness. It is an important reminder we might need now more than ever. As readers, are we suddenly the stones watching the unravelling of sibling relationships or are the stones trying to say that they are us, sharing our family story? Perhaps a little bit of both. Either way, I'm so thankful this book exists»

Szilvia Molnar, author of The Nursery

«There is a searing honesty to the narrative . . . There are few novels that evoke the landscape as sensually as this. The mountains, streams, trees and stones are there on every page, even as an unmentioned presence. The landscape underpins everything . . . There is a quiet wisdom in the narration that works brilliantly»
