A really remarkable book - so fresh and original. I've never read anything quite like this.
The most wonderful book. Unusual, beautiful, feminist, gripping, deserves to win prizes. I loved it so much.
Exquisitely composed, with a muscular feminist sensibility, Before You Knew My Name is both elegiac and rhapsodic in its examination of the deaths - and lives - of women.
I absolutely relished this clever, original and moving novel. Jacqueline Bublitz is a fantastically adept writer, creating a wonderful cast of characters and a hugely engaging portrait of city life.
I fell head over heels in love with this heartbreaking, beautiful and hugely important novel. Jacqueline Bublitz's prose is luminous and the up-all-night, just-one-more-page plot is brilliantly clever and original. Everyone should read this book.
I was mesmerised by this exquisitely written, heartbreaking, lyrical story of friendship from beyond the grave.
An unputdownable debut - striking, moving, gripping throughout and so sharp on the things that unite us.
A brilliantly powerful read, Before You Knew My Name is an astonishing debut.
An extraordinary and hypnotic read that has stayed with me months after reading.
