  • A chilling and disturbing novel in which family represents the heart of darkness.

    The Times
  • Stark and gently funny, this is a tragic and lovely novel.

  • Reading the Dutch novelist Renate Dorrestein is an infallible reminder of how rare it is to find a gripping story about the old and the very young ... an effectively touching translation of a tale of three disregarded nobodies.

    Independent Magazine
  • Her novels read like film scripts...psychological thrillers in which what's most to be feared is closest to home...painfully cutting, and surprisingly funny...a truly courageous writer.

  • Gripping and unexpected, dramatic yet understated ... well-crafted, moving and compelling tale.

    Oxford Times
