Review

Droll, shrewd and unafraid - a winning debut

Fiercely intelligent, brutally funny and written with such heart, Exciting Times announces an impressive new voice in literature.

Read if you like Animals by Emma Jane Unsworth, Trick Mirror by Jia Tolentino, The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath - Sunday Times Style

Exciting Times, which was acquired in a seven-way bidding war, more than lives up to the hype ... It teems with insight around class, race, language and sexuality. Likely to fill the Sally-Rooney-shaped hole in many readers' lives. - Irish Times

A love story about three expats in Hong Kong - teacher Ava, banker Julian, and the alluring Edith - and explores the nuances and uncertainties of modern love - Cosmopolitan, 'Best Books of 2020'

A sharp, funny account of a contemporary relationship, told tenderly and with biting, bright insight.

So wry, witty and insightful

Dolan's debut lives up to the hype, a hypnotic tale of a young Irish woman adrift in Hong Kong and caught between two very different relationships. - The i newspaper --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Review

Droll, shrewd and unafraid - a winning debut, Hilary Mantel, author of WOLF HALL

Fiercely intelligent, brutally funny and written with such heart, Exciting Times announces an impressive new voice in literature. -- Nathan Filer, author of THE SHOCK OF THE FALL

Witty, compelling and with a razor-sharp social commentary. I guzzled it. -- Pandora Sykes

A modern love story ... astute, sardonic and highly emotionally aware ... Heralding for sure a new star in Irish writing, Irish Times

Exciting Times more than lives up to the hype ... Likely to fill the Sally-Rooney-shaped hole in many readers' lives., Irish Times

Dazzling ... So brilliantly executed ... Coming-of-age love is told in technicolour ... Banging lines follow banging lines. Your underlining pen destroys the pages ... With Exciting Times comes a rare and indeed exciting talent, a cacophony of our times, a treat for the socially distanced, Irish Independent

Lucky us ... Exciting Times will brighten lockdown ... Very funny ... Extremely sharp ... Insightful and raw, Observer

A funny, smart, contemporary love story. Perfect for fans of Sally Rooney and Emma Jane Unsworth, Sunday Times Style

Every page crackles ... Very funny ... Ultimately a very moving story, one that occupies a small sliver of time and space, but manages a lasting emotional tinnitus ... Naoise Dolan is not the new anyone. She's entirely herself, and that's plenty, Sunday Life, Irish Independent

A sharp, funny account of a contemporary relationship, told tenderly and with biting, bright insight. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
