Publisher Review

`Destined to be a 21st Century classic. Just brilliant.'-John Lewis-Stempel, author of The Running Hare; `A marvellous evocation of the Suffolk coast. It made me want to jump on the next train out of London.'-Andrew Gimson, author of Gimson's Kings & Queens; `[Juliet] creates a world full of people and poetry, which we must fight to keep forever... the whole book is both touching and often very funny, and I loved the monthly food lists.'-Jilly Cooper, author of The Rutshire Chronicles; `Brilliant memoir about nature, landscape, food and the disconnect between town and country.'-India Knight, The Sunday Times; `I feel like a stalker, but reading Juliet Blaxland's The Easternmost House, I got straight into my car and drove over to stare at her home. Her wonderful book describes living on the most extreme outpost of Suffolk's coast of erosion.' -Janice Turner, The Times; `The author writes beautifully about her life in this small extremity... a hymn to a simpler life, one lived more in tune with the rhythms of the natural world, with its wonders and its perils.'-Country Life; `Prose that flows effortlessly with a wry turn of phrase at every corner. Plus, she's bloody funny. In The Easternmost House you read the sound of her voice, and so the book rattles along like a good'un. '-Caught by the River; `A beautiful book, eloquent and evocative. Lyrical, poignant and witty, this book is a moving testament to a still enormously vibrant but vanishing time, place and way of life.' -Maggie Craig; `Blaxland's writing is evocative, whether she is writing about the roar of a storm, jugs of homemade Pimm's or the attempt to create a crop circle. She has a deep love of the coastal landscape she inhabits.' -Halfman, Halfbook
