Reviews

"A superb collection of stand-out stories... The Pier Falls is unique in that every story is brilliant... It is, simply, and ultimately, an absolute pleasure to read" * Irish Independent *
"This is a top-notch collection... It veers into unexpected territory, and the evolving surprises are mesmerizing... 'The Pier Falls' leads the collection. It is a perfectly controlled little masterpiece... So chilling that one imagines its author could carve out a second career as a horror film scriptwriter." -- Lionel Shriver * Financial Times *
"Brilliant collection... Seamless prose... It feels as though Haddon is leading you into the deepest underworld of human endeavor and behavior, yet holding your hand gently as he guides you into the labyrinth. Outstanding." -- Imogen Lycett Green * Daily Mail *
"The real redemption in these superbly gripping stories comes from their canny human detail, and the vivid, unsettling clarity they bring to our brief lives." -- Phil Baker * Sunday Times *
"He writes with the craft of Julian Barnes or, even, Truman Capote." -- Andrew Billen * The Times *
