A little book that packs a huge punch...Davies handles the horrifying climax with control and assurance --The Times
A brutal story in brutal prose. --Guardian Saturday Review
Affecting and well described...[with] searing observations of human behaviour. --Joanna Briscoe, Guardian
Glinting with pitch-black humour, Davies's razor-edged style has a lucidity and ferocity that makes much "literary" prose sound like soggy mush --Independent
If darkness has brilliance, this is it.
Brutal, funny . . . One of those rare novels that is genuinely about sex, in all its irrationality and potential for self-destruction.
