Reviews

  • A marvellously meandering, digressive study of the nature of love… Burnside has a lovely garrulousness that is distinctively his own… Exact and enthralling.

    Tessa Hadley, Guardian
  • [An] indirect, peculiar, consuming memoir… Full of wonders.

    Kate Kellaway, Observer
  • A wise and wryly glum autobiography written in a highly rewarding, pared-back style.

    Martin Hemming, Sunday Times
  • Captivating and unsettling… A work of scalding honesty.

    Sophie Elmhirst, Financial Times
  • Intoxicating… Remarkable… A long-player that resonates long after the stylus has lifted.

    Brian Morton, Glasgow Sunday Herald
