  • light on its feet and goes in deep

    Deborah Levy
  • Wry, shocking, winningly frank... What is most striking about the collection is its universality. [These stories] urgently need to be told. Pine does so with an honesty and vigour that are always uplifting

  • This compelling memoir crystallises the human experience and gives words to the feelings you never knew you had.

    Sunday Times Style
  • A truly brilliant writer... A great book

    Evening Standard
  • A brilliant collection.
