Review:

'Fordís sense of place is extraordinary... This is the work of a formidably talented novelistí -- Newsweek

'Fordís taut, compelling prose is as piercingly clear as police siren. No other storyteller writes about the alienated and uncommitted with such masteryí -- Penny Perrick, Sunday Times

'So hard-boiled and tough that it might have been written on the back of a trenchcoat. A grand ' Maltese Falconí of a novelí -- Stanley Elkin
