Review:

‘A strange, unsettling book which is, by turns, grotesque, lyrical, touching and darkly comic’ -- Spectator

‘Beautiful ... Almost every passage of this book hums with particularity and vision’ -- Observer

‘Magnificent ... intensely funny’ -- Empire

‘Profoundly moving ... far too clever, too assured and too damn good to be a first attempt’ -- Independent on Sunday
