• "Beautifully written, oddly affecting..."

    India Knight, The Sunday Times
  • "One of the most original and brutally honest memoirs I've read in a long while. Koren is a writer's writer - and she wipes the floor with any of her contemporaries. Smashed is definitely my find of the year"

    Helen Walsh, author of, Brass
  • "It is a testament to Zailckas's hard, fast, clever writing that Smashed grips from beginning to end"

    The Guardian
  • "An original and moving book that perhaps starts to explain why we seem to have a generation of bing-drinking teenage girls"

    The Observer
  • "Well and fiercely written"

    Hilery Mantel, The Sunday Telegraph
