'For his long-standing fan base, as well as recent converts through Richard & Judy-featured novel Notes From An Exhibition and this year's The Whole Day Through, it provides further evidence of Gale's stylistic deftness, insight and wonderfully eclectic range of interests… Even as rural life and perspectives dominate, other stories consistently tease out fresh territory… worth every penny.' Independent
'Vivid, believable characters…Gale has a light touch with social commentary but the undertones are often menacing' TLS
