Review:

"Not since Penelope Fitzgerald's pen was stilled has there been so transcendent and workmanlike a novel in English" (Candia McWilliam)

"Davey is a beautiful writer" ( Financial Times)

"[A] skillful handling of words. She is able to create intimacy brilliantly...beautifully observed" ( Time Out)

"Subtle and challenging...attempts something radical with the fictional form: it eludes novelistic norms in favour of something more like life" ( Guardian)

"Davey is a deft observer of the inequalities of nature that exist within families" ( Daily Telegraph)
