?Anna is a lesbian, she?s having a baby, the father is gay, her parents are ignorant of the whole thing and the neighbours are a colourful array of straight and gay characters. It is a feel-good story with an addictive style which I believe could well catch on? The Bookseller 'Amanda Boulter has written a funny, telling urban tale about a neighbourhood where different identities, sexualities and communities generate conflict, humour and wacky situations in equal measure. But this absorbing first novel is a hymn to freedom. And you believe in the humour and the energy because Boulter doesn't shirk the realities of prejudice and violence. These are tales of the city to make you shake, weep and giggle out loud. I'm already looking forward to the next one? Patricia Duncker
