  • "An impressive debut novel...Theorin's excellence in conveying bleak atmosphere is matched by his insight into sensitive family relationships"

    THE TIMES
  • "Fantastic... Theorin's prose is wonderfully descriptive"

    GUARDIAN
  • "There is warmth in Theorin's narrative and the gradual piecing together of the story leads to an unexpected denouement"

    SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
  • "Sheer storytelling grip such as this is relatively rare. A particular strength is the evocation of locale and atmosphere here; it is masterfully done"
