Reviews

  • "This collection of 20 tart tales tracks its heroines as they pick their way across urban backdrops of tarnished dreams . . . Sure to seduce readers allergic to the frothy ick-fest of Valentine's Day."

    Event Magazine, Mail on Sunday
  • "Bad Romance is a collection of beautifully crafted short stories, a kind of Tales of the Unexpected for the modern single woman. Dark, hilarious and moving by turns, with wonderful twists, its vignettes will appeal to any woman who has ever had her heart broken. Emily is very funny but there is also an elegance and poignancy to her writing that renders this book both unforgettable and unputdownable"

    Ariane Sherine, comedian and writer of BBC1’s My Family, BBC2 and BBC3’s Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps and Children’s BBC’s The Story of Tracy Beaker
  • "I plan to buy it for everyone I know who has ever been single and lived to tell the tale."

  • "Dark and hilarious . . . these stories are as full of wit as they are of warnings"

    Cosmopolitan
  • "Emily Hill’s short stories are deliciously dark and decadent – and twisted in every sense of the word. Love, revenge and obsession . . . it’s all there and as sharp as cat-flick eyeliner. I can’t wait to read more of her work!"
