  • Stunning. What an experience, the brightest and most beautiful break in the clouds. Kit is in utter command of language and story here, and wields them like no other writer

    Donal Ryan
  • Kit has the most marvellous gift of getting to the marrow of her characters and this collection of vignettes from the lives of her characters, peripheral, and not so peripheral, is a magnificent study of humanity in all its various sorrows. Her writing is exquisite, not a word is wasted and the stories are beautiful in their simplicity and truth
