  • [Morrison's] prose has the diamond cut of a poet's eye, and his story is suffused with warmth and longing-he has brought [his mother] vividly to life in an outstanding work of family literature

  • Honest, funny and touching, this is a loving tribute from a son to his mother

    Sunday Mirror
  • Morrison constructs the book beautifully, as always... Fine writing and expert editing...with Morrison's usual virtues of unsentimental observation and expert storytelling

    Sunday Times
  • A marvellous example of what a zen-like act of sustained attention can do to honour and illuminate the ordinary... It has a universality

    Evening Standard
  • A scintillating read... Not only a fine evocation of the period, but also a fascinating study of a marriage
