In a word, brilliant! Bawdy, irreverent and knowing, Alan Warner captures perfectly the vitality of youth before it's lost forever. By turns, hilariously funny, shockingly provocative, agonisingly poignant and achingly tragic, this is a splendid book. I bought it after seeing Lee Hall's stage adaptation, Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour, and was hooked. Have since read all Alan Warner's works - a real discovery, a total joy.
