…an impressive debut, one of the best I’ve read in years…Within the Ward packs a mighty punch…”

–Venero Armanno, Australian author and academic

“A thrilling debut that had me turning the page well past midnight. Larkin handles a difficult topic like depression with imagination, courage and sensitivity. This is what speculative fiction does best: it asks hard questions and finds exciting new answers.”

–Helen Marshall, author of The Migration

“…an accomplished first novel, a thoughtful meditation on loss and grief, and a nuanced reflection on the power of narrative to help with healing.”

–Una McCormack, New York Times bestselling author
