• "A delicate, crystalline, hugely impressive novel by Karl Geary. He's yet another masterful younger writer coming through. But these writers aren't just promising, they are arriving fully fledged, like a bunch of Hemingways and Waughs. (A pride of Hemingways?) This is language on the side of life, suggesting life, giving life. Wonderful."

  • "Intensely powerful."

    Sunday Mirror
  • "Luminous…brilliantly paced, full of tension and tenderness."

    Irish Times
  • "Few novelists debut with a masterpiece, but Geary has done just that. Stunning."

    Mail on Sunday
  • "Montpelier Parade is haunting – a portrayal of loneliness that is eerily beautiful and desperately moving"
