• "Brilliant, tender, a stylistic dazzler"

    Hilary Mantel
  • "A dazzling achievement"

    Time Out
  • "Morvern is a brilliant creation... more than a stunning debut novel; to my mind it establishes Alan Warner as one of the most talented, original and interesting voices around"

    Irvine Welsh
  • "Morvern is a compelling creation; elusive, enigmatic and opaque. Both ordinary and extraordinary, she gleams out like onyx from a vivid, macabre and lyrical book"

  • "Not since Camus' The Outsider has a voice with so many angles hopped and fluttered from the pages, has a note risen to chill in its opening breath"
