Regarding the backref option, the biblatex manual says:

Strictly speaking, this option only controls whether the biblatex package collects the data required to print such references. This feature still has to be supported by the selected bibliography style. All standard styles which ship with this package do so.

How to implement/invoke the feature in a "nonstandard" package?


\usepackage[english, american]{babel}

            backref=true %% or so I thought??

  title={You Must Change Your Life},
  author={Sloterdijk, P.},
  publisher={Polity Press},


\noindent Cf. Sloterdijk \citeyear[(pp. 84--85)]{sloterdijk2013change}. 


I don't see a backref
