9780141019512: The Echo Chamber

In coming into the world Evie Steppman pushed her mother out of it.

Born two months late but with an extraordinary gift of hearing, Evie has an impression of the world vastly different to the experiences of other people. Taking us from Nigeria in the 1950s to 1970s America and finally on to Scotland in the early twenty-first century, she tells us the strange story of her origins and life through her unique sensory gifts. It is a story of colonialism and empire, of love and death, of hope and fear, of mystery and strangeness, and above all, of sound and an unwanted, but inevitable, silence.

( Guardian )

Read this novel aloud. Read it wearing earplugs. But read it, and notice its aural effect ( Sunday Times )
