'This tender book will ring bells with anyone who has ever gone through the wrenching pain of love abandoned' The List
'The novel's players are ingeniously wrought together in the final chapters, making the played-out machinations of the initial chapters a vague memory, and the book worth reading after all' Sunday Business Post, Dublin
'Read this for the dark descriptions of urban life and the send-up of London's art scene' Cosmopolitan
'This novel may be about a young woman whose lover walks out after nine years, but there is joy and friendship too, and a deep understanding of what makes relationships work. Deftly drawn and very beautiful' Belgravia
'Excellent . . . Colourful characters and a plausible plot make this an enjoyable read, and as wel have all been rejected in one way or another at some time, it is a theme we can all empathise with' Living Abroad Magazine
'If you've ever been dumped then you'll love Elvis has Left the Building' Mirror
'Tania Kindersley's third novel is nigh on perfect. It's clever, original, beautifully written, achingly sad, smilingly happy and so real that by the end you have to pinch yourself to remember that Iris and Paco and Skila and Pansy aren't actually real people after all. A fantastic book by a brilliant writer' B
'Iris's every thought is tinged with sadness but she channels it into illuminating wit and priceless wisdom . . . This exceptionally charming and heart-tugging read . . . With a fair dousing of lines that the once heartbroken would want to frame and quote, this is a book with real soul' The Herald, Glasgow
'Set against the backdrop of the trendy conceptual-art world, this is a superior example of the relationship-smash genre, but there is a glimmer of more . . . This tale is unexpectedly moving' The Sunday Times
"I loved this book because it's very funny and poignant. It's about a heartbroken girl coming to terms with her loss and gradually taking revenge on her bloke. She's a person every one of us wold recognise and relate to by way of coping with loss." Mail on Sunday
The long-awaited new novel from the author of Goodbye, Johnny Thunders will not disappoint her many fans.See all Product Description

This book was a pleasure to read and is as good as her previous novels which I also loved.I found it very hard to put it down. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a book about life and love that manages to be both cynical and optimistic at the same time.
