‘A beautiful reflection on love, grief, and friendship. Witty and profound.’ – Fiona Mozley

‘A work of both harrowing beauty and exquisite gentleness, which several times moved me to tears; a profound, tenderly-crafted meditation on grief and the everyday heroism of those who somehow help us heal.’ – Musa Okwonga

‘A delicate and all knowing balance between prose and poetry, Let Me Be Like Water holds you in the familiar place of loss, longing, and survival. Devastating and beautiful.’ – Chimene Suleyman

‘A deeply felt, deeply romantic novel of fragmentary, raw emotion, that flickers and flares like a nerve exposed.’ – Barney Norris

Let Me Be Like Water is a beautiful, honest and engaging study of how we are healed through the grace of others. It is a novel about the people and places we love, and how, when these are lost, we learn, often in the most surprising ways, how to begin again.’ – John Burnside

‘Radiant and brave.  A beautifully crafted study of loss and the redemptive nature of friendship; and a powerful reminder of the tendernesses of love, in all its forms.’ – Kate Howard

‘Intimate, ruthless, featherlight: S.K.Perry’s novel Let Me Be Like Water is like a long night talk with a stranger on a train, who becomes your best friend for eight hours. This book is like medicine for the soul.’ – Nina George

‘This beautiful novel about mourning is actually a celebration of life and the regenerative power of friendship. Let Me Be Like Water transcends pain and comforts; it dances in the sky like a kite.’ – Denis Thériault
