  • Of all contemporary writers, Simpson has the most honest, the most authentic voice

    The Times
  • Her stories can be read quickly, knocked back in a single, grateful gulp like an aperitif, or savoured with a slow, cool intoxication... She is Katherine Mansfield's natural successor

  • Biting wit...has me laughing aloud

    Pat Barker
  • Simpson's wit defies formulaic feminism or, indeed, any other -ism... Very, very funny

    Evening Standard
  • Full of good jokes, wonderfully alert to irony and the possibilities of language

    Jonathan Coe
