Review:

"A fascinating comic creation" Independent "It is a funny and inventive book and Turner manages to fence dazzlingly with stereotypes and sharp home truths while making her mordant observations part of a far bigger picture" -- Stuart Kelly Scotland on Sunday "This is an original first novel, cruel and incisive" -- Viv Groskop Sunday Express "This is a very clever, subtle novel, that in its quiet way polishes the surface of things so that we see them, for a while, as if for the first time" -- Nicholas Lezard Evening Standard "A highly amusing and pretty convincing satire of the newspaper industry" Times Literary Supplement
