WE ALL HAVE TO FACE OUR FEARS EVENTUALLY: a Review of Naomi Booth’s Sealed

That was the old magic. But we live in new times. I can’t depend on the old magic

of skin, on the old secrets of healing. Our skin in a hex on us now: it turns

our bodies to puffs of smoke, chewing out their own fires.’(p.17)

Naomi Booth’s novel Sealed is a lot of things, but forgettable is not one of them. Branded as ecological horror fiction, the book is that and also much more, as apart from discussing the themes of climate change and pollution, it also talks about paranoia, grief, and, obviously, motherhood.
