Full of laughter as well as affection ...a midsummer dream ( THE TIMES)
Clare Boylan has a light touch... her humour is sure, with a right feeling for the grotesque... the mixture is delicious. ( IRISH TIMES)
All the familiar concerns of Clare Boylan's short stories are extended here into a beautifully observed, witty and touching story of growing up in a tyrannical household and surviving. ( GOOD HOUSEKEEPING)
