Product description

Review

Delightful ... a rare love story between a father and a son (Sunday Telegraph)

An awesomely talented writer (Jonathan Coe)

Ms O'Flynn is a remarkable and original writer...tenderness, warmth, thoughtfulness and comic genius are words that are flung around a lot, but it's more than that. She flinches at nothing and is as sharp as dammit (Fay Weldon Observer)

O'Flynn writes with brilliant wit and warmth about people cast adrift in contemporary wildernesses, and the resolution between father and son is surprising and satisfying (The Times)

Like Jonathan Coe, O'Flynn has a gift for catching recent social history in her fiction, and this is a cuttingly down-to-earth book about families, expats and the experience of being Irish in Britain in the 1970s (Sunday Times)

The charm of this story of the skill and pathos with which the touching father and son relationship is portrayed. Subtle, clever and thoroughly enjoyable (Sunday Mirror)
