"...a retelling of the myth of Orpheus. Telling tales is not a problem for this most extraordinary of writers, who defies fashion, taking tags such as 'mid range' and 'young adult' and throwing them into the cold sea. A Song for Ella Grey (our heroine is a sort of Eurydice-on-Tyne) bites you from page one... Almond's version is a revelation; his poetic prose seeps into your blood like word-venom until you can't imagine reading anything else." - The Times on Saturday on A Song For Ella Grey.
