Review:

"A warm, big-hearted tale with a hero you can't help but cheer for" -- Matt Haig "An unpretentious, accessible comedy... a fine example of the things that happen when one dares to think outside the box" * Guardian * "A triumphant tale of life, loss, hope and family" * Big Issue * "An excellent, incisive modern satire that manages to be simultaneously touching, funny and thought-provoking" * Glasgow Herald * "One of the very few writers who can remember precisely what childhood was really like, how crazy and intense it really was. Utterly unpretentious, totally engaging and very funny" -- Mark Haddon
