"Caustic and entertaining" Sunday Times "Sharply observed and always entertaining" Independent "This is an impressive debut: a good story, well told, great characters, with sardonic, knowing digs at the youthful pretention...clever, wry and often hilarious" Time Out "Well-written, tremendously confident" Irish Independent "Characters that leap out at you like figures in a pop-up book. Joseph O'Connor's first novel suggests he is bound for fame" Observer
