I am about half-way through Julia Martin’s A Millimetre of Dust and have so far loved every second and every word of it. The comparison (made on the back cover-blurb) with the great W.G Sebald is not an exaggeration – while reading this wonderful book my mind seems to enter an altered mindspace, where all my senses are somehow heightened, similar to what I experience when reading Sebald. Absolutely wonderful in the way her writing gently teases out connections between disparate things. For me it has been the start of a valuable, nurturing reconnection with place. Thank you, Julia!
