• "Memorably bittersweet... [with] brilliantly pitched dialogue and monologue. The final cataclysmic scene is masterly"

  • "The way that this middle-aged man manages to inhabit a gang of girls with such gusto and conviction is one of the small miracles of contemporary fiction, and Warner has done it once again"

    Phil Baker, The Sunday Times
  • "This is a snarly group picaresque, a black comedy in which Gatwick airport is like Kafka's Castle in reverse... stifling, hilarious and indelible"

    Nora Chassler, Scottish Review of Books
  • "Warner navigates the comic, the philosophical and the socially acute like no other writer we have"

  • "Vigorous and uncannily convincing... Readers would be sorry if Warner were to have finished with these characters"

    Daily Telegraph
