  • Reading In The Dark is a swift, masterful transformation of family griefs and political violence into something at once rhapsodic and heartbreaking. If Isaac Babel had been born in Derry, he might have written this sudden, brilliant book.

    Seamus Heaney
  • Marvellous...almost impossible to put down

    Blake Morrison, Independent on Sunday
  • Go into your nearest bookshop and buy Reading In The Dark... A novel that no reader with any concern for their heart or mind should be without

    A. L. Kennedy, Scotsman
  • A wonderful evocation of childhood; a vibrant, unforgettable fragment that leaves you aching for more

    Robert McCrum, Observer
  • A profoundly emotive and seamlessly structured exploration of loss and regret. It is also funny and authentic. What more could one ask of a book?

    Antonia Logue, Guardian
