Review

'A vivid picture of life in the Blitz ... This enormous book contains much
that is grim, bloody, almost overwhelming to read, but it proves Connolly
to be an original and masterly novelist.' -- The Daily Mail

'By uniting moral fable with melodrama and action thriller Connolly creates
an exuberant, often powerful and moving reading of the underside of the
second world war.' -- Guardian

Connolly has a fine ear...the dialogue...is wonderfully evocative of the
time and the society. It is an extraordinary work of sympathetic
imagination. -- The Scotsman, 12th May 2007

The domestic texture of the 1930s and 1940s is recreated in great detail.
The result...is undeniably powerful and moving. -- The Evening Standard, 8th May 2007

This enormous book contains much that is grim, bloody, almost overwhelming
to read, but it proves Connolly to be an original and masterly novelist -- The Daily Mail, 20th April 2007

'A blackly funny tale of love and betrayal ... JACK THE LAD is a tour de force of sustained invention.' -- The Times

'A bravura piece of fiction, often shocking ... but ultimately breathtaking.' -- Daily Telegraph

'Why isn't Joseph Connolly more famous? It is one of the
imponderables of modern British fiction ... an interesting companion piece
to that other recent sideways look at London during the Second World War,
The Night Watch by Sarah Waters.' -- The Telegraph

Jack the Lad and Bloody Mary is a cracking melodrama of life in
wartime. Connolly creates an exuberant, often powerful and moving reading
of the underside of the second world war. -- Guardian, 28th April 2007

Why isn't Joseph Connolly more famous? It is one of the
imponderables of modern British fiction. His literary pedigree is
impeccable. -- Telegraph, 21st April 2007
