Reviews

  • "An intoxicating and immersive read... It is a fraught and compelling novel; one that replays itself uncomfortably in the mind long after it is finished"

    Lucy Atkins, Sunday Times
  • "Intense... Ms Jones is unflinching as she plots the course of fallout with no shelter, of wounded lives undone by desperation in love and art"

    Carmela Ciuraru, New York Times
  • "Written with a precision and a level of descriptive subtlety that puts her up there with our foremost novelists. I can't help but feel that if she had been born Samuel Jones she would already be considered on a par with the Barneses and McEwans of this parish... Fallout is crafted with a pared-back delicacy and attention to detail that shows an author determined to do better with every sentence. And at the same time, there is an intensity of focus, a merciless yet empathetic gaze directed towards each of the main characters that ensures we care deeply about each of them"

    Elizabeth Day, Observer
  • "Hugely enjoyable... Fallout is both deliciously gobble-able and carefully constructed... A thoroughly pleasurable read"

    Holly Williams, Independent on Sunday
  • "An intelligent, pacy tale... Every summer needs a One Day-style read; this book is a contender for that crown"

    Anne Ashworth, The Times
