    i Paper
  • Funny, smart, soulful and sometimes devastating, this book shows life in all its shades. It made me laugh and cry

    Emilie Pine, author of Notes to Self
  • Warm, wry, charming, absorbing ... It's the most gorgeous and heartbreaking book about humans and why we need each other

    Daisy Buchanan, via Twitter
  • Funny and adorable

    Nina Stibbe
  • I was reminded - very happily reminded - of Kurt Vonnegut. But Patrick Freyne is his own writer and this book is clever, lovely and great, great fun

    Roddy Doyle
  • Patrick Freyne has a distinct and enviable gift for story-telling ... Full of humour and tenderness, this book is an absolute JOY

    Sinéad Gleeson, author of Constellations
  • One of the best-written, smartest and gosh-darn-it funniest books I've read in a very long while

    Séamus O'Reilly
  • Hilariously, painfully, Freynefully brilliant

    Joseph O'Connor
  • Whether he's writing about his childhood on a military base, working in a kebab shop with a nazi in his teens, playing in punk bands in his twenties, or grappling with the question of whether to have children, Patrick Freyne is a writer of rare humour, depth, and humanity. These essays are a delight

    Mark O'Connell, author of To Be a Machine
  • A cracking, sad, funny, honest, brave and hilarious read
