MEDIA REVIEWS

An intense and intriguing novel that never quite lets the reader get comfortable. It understands about the fuzzy boundary between the normal and the strange, and weaves them together in a gripping, ever-darkening narrative - Jenny Diski

who wouldn't kill for a comic gift like Jenn Ashworth's? - Guardian

a hugely readable debut novel...about the inability to know others and ourselves - Independent

evokes a damaged mind with the empathy and confidence of Ruth Rendell - The Times

extremely intense and powerfully intriguing - Waterstone's
