Reviews

  • "Woven around a subtle reworking of a well-known literary archetype: the returned Yank...The Free and Easy gives a sardonic contemporary twist to this motif, [it] consistently entertains in its gentle mockery"

    Liam Harte, Irish Times
  • "An acutely observed and perceptive portrait of the arriviste Irish...The writing, as admirers of Haverty would expect, is lucid and masterful. It captures the cynicism of a society for whom money is god without allowing that cynicism to corrupt its own integrity"

    Justine McCarthy, Irish Independent
  • "A virtuoso performance...in turns hilarious, tender and acerbic"

    Marcella Edwards, Literary Review
  • "Haverty's entertaining satire paints a vibrant picture of 21st Century Ireland"

    Anthony Gardener, Mail on Sunday
  • "Haverty is one of our most interesting novelists, with an admirable chameleon quality evident in her books... Has an acutely observant eye... Her prose is stylish and possessed of a wicked humour"

    Sunday Tribune
