'A is for Angelica and MF is for meticulously funny. It will make you laugh out loud and feel guilty about it afterwards.' --Simon Crump
'A first novel that confidently moves from dark comedy that's genuinely funny to even darker despair that grows from moving to harrowing... Really impressive' --Daily Mail
'An oddly addictive and often hilarious read... Presented in uncomplicated, unembellished prose, this is a brilliant and adeptly written debut novel, loaded with poignancy and feeling.' --Time Out
'Basically, if you don t laugh and cry over A is for Angelica in almost equal measures then bears don t deposit their personal waste in wooded areas and I'll only read this book once.' --The Bookbag
'I think this is a haunting and powerful first novel ... a book I shall certainly read again.' --Newbooks
