• "Middleton's use of dialogue is as stylised in it's own way as Hemingway's.he is a novelist who asks you to think as well as feel. There is a stoicism to Middleton's work. He shrinks from nothing."

    The Scotsman
  • "Stanley Middleton writes so well about the concerns of middle-class England"

    The Express
  • "Middleton's latest novel is nevertheless an illuminating examinatio n of middle class mores. Small Change also offers an insight into the mind of the kind of fortysomething over-acheiver who thought he was indestructible - but who gradually faces up to his own mortality."
