    Daily Mail
  • Novels rarely come as funny and as moving as this utterly brilliant
    exploration of teenhood and the anticlimax of becoming an adult . . . Skippy Dies is intuitive, truthful and one of the finest comic novels written anywhere. Dies? Never! Skippy lives

    Eileen Battersby, Irish Times
  • I loved Skippy Dies . . . three novels fused into one ignited tragicomic tour de force

    Ali Smith, Times Literary Supplement
  • Skippy Dies is one great high-octane fizz bang of a book

    Patrick McCabe, Irish Times
  • Extravagantly entertaining

    New York Times Book Review
  • A comic epic. Murray is a brilliant comic writer, but also humane and touching, and he captures the misery and elation, joy and anxiety of teenage life. A brilliant depiction of the heaven and hell of male adolescence

    David Nicholls, Guardian
