"Matt Suddain’s debut is a crazily multilayered odyssey through space, time and the universe next door…it’s definitely not dull. No book in which the Pope addresses his enemies as ‘Bumface’ runs that risk." (Imogen Russell Williams Metro

"An extremely literate and clever story… This is a delightful book, full of surreal twists and turns of invention and humour, written in a breezy and engaging manner." (Simon Marshall-Jones Interzone
