Praise for The Space Between Things: 'The Space Between Things vividly captures a moment in Britain's recent past, and takes us inside a world and a milieu which most readers won't have known before. And as a tragic love story it packs a considerable punch -- Jonathan Coe
Rich in wry social commentary, funny and linguistically dextrous * Observer *
A marvellously observed [and] accomplished first novel * The Times *
The comic extremes of the plot are anchored by credible central characters and a tone that stays on the right side of wacky. Books is an entertaining, pacy read that should not have any adverse effects on your own brain. * The List *
A pacy, daft little comedy which can be zipped through with ease. It's light, it's fun, but, as a consequence of Hill's evident passion for literature, convincingly eludes disposability. -- Alastair Mabbott * The Herald *
An entertaining, pacy read -- Ally Nicholl * The List *
Effortless prose packed with humour that is genuinely laugh-out-loud funny * Bookmunch *
Dark, anarchic, naughtily funny ... An entertaining novel warning us about the way that the book industry is going -- Ani Johnson * Bookbag *
Charlie Hill's satire on the book world is sharp, funny, and shrewd -- David Evans * FT *
This agitated and jagged novel is a timely intervention in the war of position between people who love books and people who just love flogging them ... Hill is a smart writer - provocative but not juvenile, ironic but not weary. He has fashioned a serrated little weapon of war here. Read it carefully. This book could really hurt someone. Someone who probably deserves it. -- Paul Simon * Morning Star *
