• "'Filled with echoes and resonance, intelligence and insight, Bailey's story unfolds the complex, touching failure of brotherly love with a refreshing lack of sentimentality or pretension...A compelling, blackly comic drama of family implosion'"

    The Times
  • "'It is a pleasure to read a writer who makes writing so effortless...There are not many writers who can take as their central theme the Meaning of Life and come up smelling of roses'"

  • "'A beautifully written tale of how people create a city and how cities create people. Bailey has crafted a homage to a city that has clearly got under her skin, to produce one that gets under ours too'"
