  • Kennedy's great gift throughout for amused honesty, the clear-eyed dissection of sexual and emotional the book its rare cargo of resonance... It sparkles with beautiful observation

    Steven Poole, Independent on Sunday
  • A revelation. It's the best piece of writing A. L. Kennedy has yet done

    Jenny Turner, Independent
  • The supremely original writer among a gifted generation of young British fiction talents

    Tom Adair, Scotland on Sunday
  • A delight... Subtle, erotic, ambitious and accomplished
