"Remember the name Barney Norris. He's a new writer in his mid-twenties, but already outstanding." * Times *
"Looks well beyond the literary intelligentsia's world, describing with great humanity five ordinary lives, and coming close, as it does so, to being a "state of the nation" novel - albeit one with none of the bombast the term usually implies...deeply affecting...a tolerant and insightful debut" * Guardian *
"Barney Norris is a rare and precious talent...a writer-chronicler to be cherished." * Evening Standard *
"Outstanding...a moving, strangely uplifting novel that grapples with the coarse substance of everyday existence and poetically celebrates its passage. Superb." * Mail on Sunday *
