Product description

Review

The characters have a true vitality in their grotesqueness, and no book is pointless which reminds us of the infinite variety of human experience.
Auberon Waugh, Evening Standard

The mother in Paul Bailey’s novel is awful enough to be able to bat for England for meanness.
Sunday Times

The use of dialogue is especially brilliant and even recalls Henry Green.
Financial Times
