'A compelling and candid portrait of a family in crisis' Mail on Sunday 'Impressive ... an intelligent, generous and unsentimental take on an English middle-class family' Daily Telegraph 'Extraordinarily bold ... This is a funny, angry, moving novel' Independent 'Bitingly funny and fiercely observed ... The savage irony and probing moral questioning nicely balance each other out, and as an exploration of contemporary Englishness it is unsurpassed' New York Times Book Review
