Product description

Review

"Monaghan's is a powerful, loving, and honest new voice." -- A. L. Kennedy, author of "Paradise" and "So I Am Glad"

"Startling and potent . . . "The Killing Jar" is a vibrant, shocking blast of life from Broxtowe. [Monaghan's] convincing characters swing unpredictably between terrifying and tender, and the often violent encounters usually have a bleakly funny edge." -- "The Independent" (London)

"When literature is at its best it transports us, takes us into the souls of people we might not otherwise know; it expands our humanity, and this is the extraordinary achievement of Nicola Monaghan's novel "The Killing Jar", which opened up a world I never knew existed." -- asha bandele, author of "The Prisoner's Wife" and "Daughter"

"A gripping, mile-a-minute British debut. Enthralling." -- "Kirkus Reviews" (starred)

"This is class writing and gripping narrative, a true talent. It is an excellent piece of storytelling in language that is fully alive." -- George Szirtes, author of "Reel", winner of the T. S. Eliot Prize

"The thrills and horrors of life as a young drug dealer play out against a backdrop of suburban decay in Monaghan's sharp-edged debut. The stark material and unsentimental prose make for a wrenching look at devotion, crime, and violence." -- "Publishers Weekly" (starred)

"Monaghan's novel is direct and deceptively simple. In spite of suffering there are surprising touches of humour and tenderness that bloom like flowers on asphalt." -- "The Times" (London)

"Utterly gripping." -- "Booklist" (starred)

The Sunday Herald

"a good debut"
