Exciting, elegant, urgent, true - her writing is all of these
things and more. One of Ireland's best novelists -- Roddy Doyle
A compelling, beautifully told story . . . I was utterly enthralled from beginning to end -- Liz Nugent
In Calista and Pilar, Dunne has created two very different, but equally intriguing characters, and it is impossible not to root for them as they battle to forge their own way in a world where men hold sway * Irish Independent *
Lived-in, hardearned feminism swirled with a noir tone and dark turns makes for a great read * Kirkus Reviews *
Poignant and satisfying * Booklist *
