Advance Praise for Sing Your Sadness Deep

"Laura Mauro's SING YOUR SADNESS DEEP is a beautiful foray into the strange and uncanny. She digs deep into the psyche of her characters, revelling in the mysteries that propel them through their confrontations with the liminal and the bizarre. A sublime and haunting debut."

-- Simon Strantzas, author of NOTHING IS EVERYTHING

"Laura Mauro does indeed sing her sadness deep, with assured melodies, strange resonances and beautiful harmonies. This is just her first collection -- I can't wait to see what she will do next."

-- Priya Sharma, author of ALL THE FABULOUS BEASTS

"Laura Mauro's work exists in the hard space where the mythic collides with the everyday, where fairy tales transform into stories that feel modern and urgent. These are horror stories, yes -- but it's horror born from a cry for compassion and understanding. Disturbing and heartfelt, beautiful yet grotesque, they reveal strange new worlds whilst shining a light on the world we think we know."

-- Robert Shearman, author of TINY DEATHS
