“Inferno is a special story that digs its fingers into your heart and refuses to let go. It’s powerful, evocative and gives a sharp insight into a subject that isn’t spoke about nearly enough, but at the same it hums with a unique sort of magic underneath the gritty realism – a blend of memories, folk tales and gorgeous prose that proves that Catherine Cho is a master of her craft. Simply breath-taking.” – Charlie Edwards-Freshwater, The Book Boy
“Intense and frighteningly clever.” – Ova Ceren, Excuse My Reading
“Inferno has brought back a lot of my own child birth memories and it was such a gripping and compelling recount of one of the most traumatic human experiences” – Sissi Zhang, Sissi Reads
“an extremely brave, raw and hard-hitting book, bringing a cross-cultural perspective to a topic that is still not widely known or spoken about” – Marina Sofia, Finding Time to Write
