  • "Enright deals beautifully with the modern world ... blood, guts, and heart-stopping beauty"

    Independent
  • "At the top of her form, she is remarkable"

    Jane Shilling, The Times
  • "Shockingly beautiful and painfully funny"

    Observer
  • "The quality of the writing should help to explain Enright's having won the 2007 Man Booker Prize ... single lines and paragraphs are so well crafted, with such salty, pleasantly brutal sensibility, that these stories function like beguiling advertisements for Enright's novels. After sampling Taking Pictures, those who, like me, have not yet read The Gathering will likely move her Man Booker winner nearer to the top of the pile beside the bed"

    Lionel Shriver, Daily Telegraph
  • "She's a sphinx, an alchemist, a literary witch who sticks a spell on you. Angela Carter and Ali Smith can do this too.... buy it, read it, it isn't realism, it's music"
