Professional reviews

"A bright book about dark subjects: a tale about kindness and its limits, told with love, nominated for the Costa First Novel Award ‘With wit and zest, Clanchy creates social comedy out of teeth-clenching situations… Clanchy’s trenchant, often very funny prose also shimmers with sensual pleasures’ GUARDIAN ‘Meeting the English feels like an updated Iris Murdoch novel, with sharper haircuts and more Laura Ashley furnishings.’ INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY"
