MEDIA REVIEWS
'Kavenna is a fantastically hilarious writer with scepticism, irony and venom pouring out of her fingertips' Avrupa. * Avrupa *
'An absolute knock-out - had me laughing again and again' Chris Cleave. * Chris Cleave *
'a short, sharp shock of a read, darkly funny and enjoying a satirical poke at the impracticability and earnestness of some anti-capitalists' Country Life magazine. * Country Life magazine *
'A resonance of mental instability thrums throughout as Kavenna probes received notions of justice and equality, property and rights, in this often hilarious and fast-paced tale of rural revolt' Independent. * Independent *
'Kavenna's comedy is effortless, brilliant and occasionally savage' Literary Review. * Literary Review *
'Kavenna writes as if possessed, as if on a mission, as if she had been taken over by her wonderful, impossible, dynamic leading character ... This is a novel to read at speed, laughing all the way to the edge' Observer. * Observer *
'crackles and sparkles and will have you chuckling on every page' Red Online. * Red Online *
'sharp, neat, well written and darkly comic' Telegraph. * Telegraph *
'Oh my aching sides ... Laugh? I nearly exploded reading Kavenna's knock-out satire on alternative lifestyle' Daily Mail. * Daily Mail *
