Reviews

  • "Anne Fine at her wittiest"

    TES
  • "Fine powerfully captures the chaos, frenetic activity and disharmony some families generate. The pace, humour and dramatic repartee could be those of an Alan Ayckbourn play"

    The Bookseller
  • "There's a grim cast in this hilarious but barbed story of how Christmas can go so wrong for so many people"

    Guardian
  • "Anne Fine works miracles with her just sharper-than-life observations"

    Junior Education
  • "A gorgeously observed tale of what Christmas can really be like"

    Katie Nicholl, Daily Express
