  • 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

    Lisa McInerney, author of The Glorious Heresies
  • Luminous and moving. A story that asks who you can love and how, and a novel that gets to the heart of things; it certainly got to the heart of me.

    Sunjeev Sahota
  • A genuine talent.

    Daily Mail
  • The precision in his prose bellies his training as a scriptwriter; the plot unfolds with self-assured ease, and the dialogue lives on the page… He trusts his reader, and the novel has compulsive power because of it. An astonishing debut.

    Calen O'Hanlon, Skinny
  • A groundbreaking debut. Montpelier Parade is a taut, riveting, beautifully sparse coming of age tale from a fearless new talent

    Téa Obreht, National Book Award Finalist & New York Times bestselling author of The Tiger's Wife
  • I hope that someone will give me an advance copy… I’ve heard it’s lyrical, brave and inventive – everything I look for in a novel.

    Maggie O'Farrell, Observer, Book of the Year
