Review:
"has all the narrative nuances that have made his style synonymous with David Lynch's: the eclectic sound track, the freak-show cast of ageing and raging odd-balls, and the fractured dialogue between personal dreams and kitsch, accidental cultural guardians - it's the novel's unfilmable inner stories that propel it so speedily into the reader's fascination" (City Life)

"Gifford is a brilliant writer - a hard-boiled stylist with a soft-centred heart...His books are like the world they portray: wild at heart and weird on top." (The Herald)

"Gifford's grim scene-setting embraces people, places, hope, courage and despair. That's plenty to be going on with." (Literary Review)

"Intense, precise, funny, often sad - Mr Gifford is a master of precision in a strange, stark beauty of language." (Paris Voice)
