Reviews

When you have long forgotten many other fictional lovers, there is something about Addie and Bruno, their past and their world, that will not go away
Maeve Binchy, The Irish Times
An exceptional novel . . . It is truly a story for our time. This is How it Ends signals the belated arrival of a new Irish commercial writer with an extraordinary gift and a voice that is entirely her own
Irish Independent
Kathleen MacMahon's prose could not appear more effortless or beautiful . . . The twist in this tale is utterly unexpected and satisfyingly unpredictable . . . A bittersweet, engaging novel that will no doubt become a book-club darling
Sunday Independent
A tender love story. A book about love, family, children and that glorious sense of being alive
Irish Examiner
The beginning of bank protests, alongside the American election and how crucial it seemed, send a tremor through the narrative
