    Praise for Zoe Lambert 'Reading  'The War Tour' is like wandering through a labyrinth of the unexpected,  full of marvellous things... Lambert gazes into the abyss and does not flinch.'
    3:AM Magazine
    'A startling good collection of stories by a confident writer. Reading it is like taking a masterclass in how to do it well.'
    MsLexia Magazine
    'Lambert's  collection presents a carefully balanced picture of the world's combat zones... The writing is disarmingly plain and to-the-point... a kind of narrative ambush... I'd recommend that you read these.'
    The Guardian
     'Ranging confidently across time and place, Lambert's stories are sharply observed, moving, and continually surprising.'
    Jane Rogers
