Tom has been receiving great early reviews for Metronome. Naomi Ishiguro calls it ‘taut, unsettling and so completely charged with both tension and emotion’. While Emma Stonex says the novel is “a pure, tender, terrifying vision that had me gripped to its beat from the first page. Cleverly imagined and beautifully creepy, it’s a story as moving as it is chilling.”
The novel will also be one of the featured titles on the new BBC2 series of Between the Covers presented by Sara Cox.
We wish Tom huge success with the novel and hope he finds many new readers.
