Searing . . . with a sharp humour and a highly original voice . . . This is not a 'coming of age' story, a love story, or a dissection of marriage; it's all of these things at once, and somehow more nakedly raw than those genres, alone, could possibly capture.
A brave, essential book . . . beautiful
Lyrical and explosive in equal measure, this book pulses with love and loss
A gorgeous coming of age story, exploring the mother-daughter relationship with generosity and nuance
The narrative pings along - as compulsive as it is shocking . . . a brilliant debut - the best Irish one in a strong year
