• "Delightful… Segal’s writing is wise, witty and observant."

    Kate Saunders, The Times
  • "Wonderful...witty…an astonishingly accomplished debut which will draw comparisons between Segal and Zadie Smith and Monica Ali."

  • "An impressive debut...the struggle to achieve true adulthood, the loss of innocence and the consequences of adapting to a culture that levies certain expectations on its members, are all cleverly worked into a poised text"

    Elizabeth Buchan, Sunday Times
  • "A subtle, witty and acutely observed study of a narrow but very recognisable world."

    The Observer
  • "Witty and touching... An assured and audacious debut"
