• "A supercharged riot of a debut novel, zinging with confidence and intelligence."

    Joseph O'Connor
  • "Ciaran McMenamin writes brilliantly. His characters are achingly vivid and entirely credible and the pacing is Olympian. Horrifying and hilarious, Skintown is a compulsive read."

    Liz Nugent
  • "McMenamin writes with verve and honesty. . . it lures the reader into the madcap night and then delivers a hairpin twist."

    Sarah Gilmartin, The Irish Times
  • "Exhilarating. . . . A TNT-powered head-rush of a novel soaked in the smell of burning tyres and set to the MDMA beat of 1990s rave culture. . . . Vinny is a hugely witty companion."

  • "I read the first page of this and was immediately hooked. It's rattlingly written, hugely immersive, funny too. Adored it."
