Reviews

  • "A novel of multi-level brilliance, which offers a smart, funny mystery built around ethical concerns over privacy and biography, while casting a beady eye on workplace politics and male midlife crises"

    Anthony Cummins, Daily Mail
  • "Adept, attentive and occasionally beautiful ... When the poetry starts to break through, the book comes alive – reverberatingly, ravishingly so. Everything is illuminated... enter the revivifying excitements of adultery, incest, euthanasia; sex and lust and love; dreams, mortality and death... exquisitely metered, intimate and yet profound, glimmeringly intelligent, slyly sensual ... A worthwhile, interesting and impressive achievement"

    Edward Docx, The Guardian
  • "Generously and skilfully written ... The unravelling of the novel’s moral perplexity is both ingenious and persuasive… A pleasing and very satisfying novel."

    Allan Massie, The Scotsman
  • "A dark and compelling tale of what we leave behind us when we die"

    Alex Preston, The Guardian
  • "A stylist and satirical take on Kindle-era publishing, and is also a timely interrogation on the pertinence of "rampant masculinity" in contemporary fiction."

    Kitty Grady, Financial Times
  • "A clever, neatly constructed mystery -- and the poems are the best thing about it"

    Anthony Gardner, The Mail on Sunday
  • "Many pleasures ... Matt's domestic scenes confirm how good Morrison is on family life"

    James Walton, The Times
  • "A cunning literary novel… Seriously probing about poetry, its origins and repercussions."

    David Grylls, The Sunday Times
  • "Entertaining, well written and acute ... Morrison has an observant eye"

    Piers Paul Read, The Tablet
  • "Morrison's prose is easy, stylish ... it is often elegant in the way it depicts marriage, secrecy, and the fragile relationships between friends and spouses"
