Product Details


“Compulsively readable . . . The wit of Evie Wyld is on sparkling display . . . Wyld is in complete control of each timeframe and narrative vantage point . . . She is an expert at withholding information until it can be delivered with maximum impact.” ―Tobias Grey, Financial Times
“Wyld has always excelled at tension and pace, and the scattered puzzle pieces drop into place with both a feeling of horror and a strange kind of satisfaction . . . Yet as well as terror The Echoes is also suffused with love . . . It is also—and this is important—a deeply funny book . . . The last, lingering voices in the novel hint at healing—and at hope.” ―Melissa Harrison, The Guardian

“Wyld has always been in a category of her own, but this is stranger, darker and more brilliant than anything she’s written before . . . This is a book that will stay with you for ever―both intimate and extraordinarily ambitious.” ―Alex Preston, The Observer (Fiction to look out for in 2024)

“Unsettling, vivid, and beautifully written.” ―Claire Fuller, author of Unsettled Ground

The Echoes is a gorgeous, wise, furious meditation on the ways in which we carry both love and pain across decades and hemispheres. Each new layer is a revelation of compassion and understanding. Wyld is brilliant on girlhood, on grief, on intimacy’s terrible costs and its funny, messy grace. This is a jewel of a novel.” ―Fiona McFarlane, author of The Night Guest

“A stunning, immersive work of sharp prose, weaving intergenerational trauma and a ghost story and the complexities of love and families. Wyld gets better with each novel.” ―Sinéad Gleeson, author of Constellations

“It takes brilliance and verve to leap into the darkness as Evie Wyld does here. What a discovery—this is the first book of her books I have read; it will certainly not be the last.” —Anne Enright, Booker Prize–winning author of The Gathering

“I’ve loved all of Evie Wyld’s novels, but I think this may be my favourite. Like all the best ghost stories, The Echoes is also a love story. It’s funny and moving and has such intelligent things to say about family, about shared histories and grief and the ways people find to heal themselves.” —Paula Hawkins, bestselling author of The Girl on the Train

“A strange and wondrous novel, my book of the year by a mile. Wyld is a literary magician, doing more in the space of a few pages than many authors manage over the course of their careers.” —Alex Preston, author of In Love and War
“A story about humans as they are—complicated bundles of pain, love, cruelty, cowardice, tenderness, bravery, loyalty. When the world is encouraging us to see each other as one-dimensional, complex characters like those in The Echoes are necessary. And on top of all that Wyld is funny.” —Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, author of Harmless Like You

“I loved this book. Evie Wyld moves effortlessly through times, places and people with a relentless, brutal, compassionate attention. I am in awe of her control over detail, emotion, and plot—and the way she shows us how we understand the personal through the local and the historical.” —Jenn Ashworth, author of Ghosted: A Love Story

“A brilliant, satisfying novel that explores flinty and essential truths about love and loss. Full of complex, believable characters and grounded in the mysteries and frustrations of the living and the dead. Flawlessly written, intriguing and ambitious. It moved me very much.” —Sharlene Teo, author of Ponti
