'Olivia Laing's writing is beautifully modulated, her tone knowledgeable yet intimate. She can evoke a state of mind as gracefully as she evokes a landscape. <i>The Trip to Echo Spring </i>is a book for all writers or would-be writers. It's one of the best books I've read about the creative uses of adversity: frightening but perversely inspiring', HILARY MANTEL
'<i>The Trip to Echo Spring</i> is original, brave and very moving. Laing's way of looking at a natural world that is free from human faults repeatedly prompts something like the "spiritual awakening" AA attendees hope for. Her insights shine with beauty yet are shaded by sympathy and compassion', Observer
'Laing's analysis of the complex addiction is consistently shrewd. But what makes <i>The Trip to Echo Spring </i>truly worthwhile is that she, like those she writes about, is a terrific writer', John Sutherland, The Times
'I loved <i>The Trip to Echo Spring</i>. It's a beautiful book that has stayed with me in a profound way', NICK CAVE
'Beguiling and incisive', New York Times
