MEDIA REVIEWS

Beautifully observed and written. Warm, witty and wise with characters so vivid and authentic, you are sure you must have been to Ernies cafe. If you enjoyed Matt Haig's The Humans, you'll love this.

-- Linda Green, author of While My Eyes Were Closed

Superbly lean and muscular. It's smart, it's fast and it bites down hard.

-- Xan Brooks, author of The Clocks in This House All Tell Different Times

A gorgeous, bittersweet novel about love, separation and the infinite possibilities for human disappointment that families can yield.

-- Helen Walsh, author of The Lemon Grove

Stephen May writes about masculinity like no-one else. I loved it.

-- Shelley Harris, author of Jubilee

A sharply observed account of the worst few days of one man's life. Wry, entertaining, and ultimately hopeful.

-- Emylia Hall, author of The Book of Summers

Reminiscent of David Nicholls' Us seen through a grittier, working class lens.

-- Claire King, author of The Night Rainbow

A warm-hearted book from the Costa Novel Award shortlisted author.

* 8 Beach Reads 2019, Sunday Mirror (Notebook Magazine) *

'Thoughtful, funny - and very human, this is a hugely enjoyable and rewarding read.'

* The Yorkshire Post *

'Told with verve, wit and intelligence.'

* Love Sunday Magazine (Sunday People) *

'Gritty and sentimental, sad and funny, and defies category or genre.'

* On: Yorkshire Magazine *

'One of those novels that grabs you and doesn't let go until the very end. May presents the difficult, hard-to-swallow moments in life in a profound and entertaining way.'
