"Wild offers exceptional fiction and reportage, with a coast-dweller’s sharp eye for maritime detail, and a humane regard for both the victims and the survivors of shipwrecks, both literal and metaphorical. From 'Prospects', a marvellous, moving reconstruction of the murderous maiden voyage of the Tayleur, to 'Luck is in the Leftovers', a gripping saga of living on the edge of the land, where life and death ebb and flow like the tides. Gill Hoffs' writing, fiction and non, swells with the power of life, sometimes life at the expense of other lives, but always animated and alive. This is visceral and vital prose, smooth as a sea-worn pebble yet sharp as sharks’ teeth." – Ronnie Scott, author of Death by Design and editor of 'Tommy’s War', 'Tommy’s Peace' and 'The Real ‘Dads’ Army’'
