• "It's perceptive, moving and excruciatingly funny. A treasure"

    Sunday Times
  • "Collins' easygoing charm is hard to resist. A welcome visitor into any home that houses a Nick Hornby or a Tony Parsons"

    The Herald
  • "Beautifully observed, cleverly narrated and very readable, it's like being part of the great unwashed again"

    Jockey Slut
  • "Entertaining and surprisingly familiar read ... Even for those of us who were still in pre-school at the time, the joys and lows are all given an added relevance via the author's emulation of Nick Hornby's self-deprecating humour. Like High Fidelity, if it had been written by a teenage Rob Fleming"
