Reviews

  • A masterclass display of versatility...mood and style in these richly concise, crisply written pieces are confidently varied, too...adding vitality to the virtuosity is a terrific ear for idiomatic speech

    Sunday Times Books of the Year
  • O’Connor’s first collection of short stories for 20 years reasserts a mastery of the form... An exhilarating array of sharp dialogue and biting one-liners... A fine compassionate collection

    Irish Independent
  • Full of lovely, delicate perceptive stuff. Joseph O'Connor is in the tradition of masterly Irish writers of short fiction

    The Scotsman
  • Joseph O'Connor's first short story collection in more than 20 years is worth the wait

    Emma Hagestadt, Independent
  • Playful but also at times sorrowful; it allows in great quantities of life, offering the dramas at times a dark edge but also the full glory of our earthly confusion.

    Colm Toibin, Irish Times
