About the Author

Helen Smith is a novelist and playwright who lives in London. She is the author of bestselling cult novel Alison Wonderland and other books and plays.


Smith has a keen eye for material details, but her prose is lucid and uncluttered by heavy description. Imagine a satire on Cool Britannia made by the Coen Brothers. Times Literary Supplement This is a novel in which the ordinary and the unusual are constantly juxtaposed in various idiosyncratic characters - Its airy quirkiness is a delight. The Times A screwball comedy that really works. The Independent Smith's world is as wacky as Nicola Barker's, but much funnier, less disquieting. Perhaps the Evelyn Waugh of Decline and Fall comes closer - She is a great snapper-up of unconsidered trifles - Wicked! Time Out Smith's second novel has a comic style with a clear, simple, buoyant prose. Irish Independent An exuberant, acutely observed second novel. Shena Mackay, The Independent
