Savage Swarming Magic

Lauren Elkin was kind enough to quote from my review of Pond when introducing Claire-Louise Bennett at Shakespeare and Company on 4 May 2016:

Andrew Gallix wrote in his review for the Guardian, of the stories in Pond — quote — “Reading them is an immersive experience. We come to share the ‘savage swarming magic’ the narrator feels under her skin by focusing at length on her ‘mind in motion’“.

Here is a picture I took of Claire-Louise signing a copy of her book at Chez Panisse, following her reading.
