A quietly devastating collection of short stories that brilliantly portrays the pervasive sense of hopelessness that immobilised us during the dog days of Covid... Silver linings have been hard to find lately, but in Life Without Children Doyle has given us just that * Sunday Times *
[A] gem of a collection... Roddy Doyle's greatest gift has always been for dialogue. He can command the full range of Irish voices and registers, but he has lately put his gifts to use in painting a picture of characters in...their "third age". -- Nikhil Krishnan * Daily Telegraph *
Moving...[and] beautiful in its brevity. -- Eithne Farry * Daily Mail *
Quietly devastating... Doyle's clipped, plain dialogue shivers with emotion. -- Philip Womack * Financial Times *
Life Without Children...displays Doyle's remarkable talent for conveying the strongest of emotions in the simplest of words and the shortest of sentences... It bristles with quietly sharp insights into the shape of a human life. -- James Walton * Reader's Digest *
