  • This is a raw, fierce, shockingly honest coming-of-age story. Tennis Lessons heralds the arrival of a startling new voice in literary fiction

    Louise O'Neill
  • I loved Tennis Lessons so much

  • An incredibly funny and poignant portrait of what it is to be young, female and human. The whole thing is witty - the narrative voice, the dialogue, the plot and the detail - while also having searing moments of sadness, discomfort and cruelty. Susannah Dickey has created a world and a main character that is by turns disgusting and charming and I loved it.

  • A beautifully written and psychologically incisive bildungsroman...the arrival of a young writer to watch

  • Brilliant . . . a wonderful writer, hugely talented, very funny and insightful.

    Alan Davies
  • Propulsive . . . brilliantly vivid . . . stays in the mind long after reading

    Irish Times
  • Absolutely brilliant . . . touchingly captures the awkward, aching longing of a misfit . . . darkly funny

  • Wonderfully shocking . . . a stunning, original debut.

    Irish Examiner
  • Fundamentally intimate . . . beguiling . . . A novel about being normal that is anything but.

    Irish Independent
  • Terrific... astute, tender, raw... very funny
