MEDIA REVIEWS
'An enthralling work of high imagination and storytelling flair.' - Donal Ryan 'Line is an extraordinary novel - gripping, unsettling, brilliant.' - Roddy Doyle 'A powerful, discomfiting fable of uncertainty and failure, poetically crafted, politically pointed, a Ballardian take on the near-now that shows us how fleeting our idea of absoluteness really is.' - June Caldwell 'Line is a modern parable of the most ambitious kind. A Grapes of Wrath for the age of digital capitalism.' - Ronan Hession 'Beautifully written, terrifyingly intelligent, shot through with poetry, political nous and a darkly comic sensibility. Queuing up for a loaf of sourdough will never feel quite the same again.' - Hilary Fannin 'Sharply funny and astute.' - Sarah Moss, Irish Times 'Reads like a lost pulp fiction classic.' - The Times 'A dystopian tale worth queuing up for... Bourke's world-building is epic.' - Independent 'Groundbreaking speculative fiction.' - Doug Johnstone, Big Issue
