What people are saying about the novel, Send:

‘Syrad's descriptions are so vivid and tangible they leap off the page - this is a book about sensation, about our physical interaction with the world, and each gradation of touch…’ (LC)

‘It’s so bold and startling in form and this alone makes me very excited as a reader…very powerful, exquisite – heart-breaking, strength-giving and beautiful.’ (JT)

Exchange - based on a Cape Farewell rural residency with two dairy farms and a sheep farm in Dorset - was listed by Melissa Harrison in The Times as one of the best nature books of 2015.

‘A gorgeous physical object … with a glorious layout of words and images … profoundly interesting and moving.’ (JK)

Cape Farewell project EXCHANGE | Little Toller

An exhibition featuring prints, photographs and a large-scale version of Exchange is currently on tour in south-west England.

Double Edge – ‘a sophisticated and accomplished poetry collection where knowledge is never merely knowing but lit with unexpected insights and human sympathy’ (KF)
