Reviews

  • Cline is an astonishingly gifted stylist, but it is her piercing understanding of modern humiliation that makes these stories vibrate with life...brilliant

    Brandon Taylor, New York Times
  • Fans of Cline will delight in the author's razor-sharp observations and penchant for storytelling

    Evening Standard
  • Cline is particularly good at locking in the witty detail that speaks volumes... These expertly constructed stories withhold key information... the pleasures here lie in an appreciation of Cline's skilful and absorbing craft

    Sunday Times
  • These stories live in the odd corners of the world, Cline's talent at uncovering the seedy and somehow bringing it to beautiful light is brilliant. These are understated gems

    Daisy Johnson
  • When I read Emma Cline I think of Mary Gaitskill's psychological acuity and of Joy Williams's sardonic gravitas. And yet something about Cline's intimate tone, her talent for conjuring the feeling of being alive, is entirely and uniquely her own

    Rachel Kushner
  • Cline is...adept at swirling little eddies of unease into motion... [In Daddy] the undercurrents of the unspoken, the unspeakable, carry you along

    Holly Williams, Observer
  • Cline's approach is cool and crisp... there's a suggestive queasiness to these bleak, well-crafted tales

    Daily Mail
  • Crackles with the darkness inherent in everyday relationships. Examining everything from masculinity, male power and the small misunderstandings that can have life-changing consequences

    Kate McCusker, Woman & Home
  • Daddy is a stunning collection of stories that plunges deep into the dark corners of the human experience

    Dazed Digital
  • So deft, with an undercurrent of unease. Cline puts into words a moment, in the same way that Cat Person did . . . cements Cline's status as a really brilliant fictional voice
