The Riordans will stay in your mind long after you finish this book. They're funny, infuriating and impossible not to love. They feel like family
Irish Times
My favourite kind of novel: big-hearted, psychologically complex and utterly gripping
Maria Semple, author of <i>Where'd You Go, Bernadette<i>
Joanna Briscoe, <i>Guardian</i>
Instantly appealing...magical
Daily Telegraph
Masterful...holds you on an exquisite knife-edge
Marie Claire
An author at the top of her game
Sunday Express
O'Farrell's language is lissom, airborne, mostly seamless, her characters flawed, contradictory, aggravating and instantly knowable. This is a deceptively easy, effortlessly true-feeling novel; a total delight
A quite wonderful novel...at once enthralling, page turning and atmospheric
Irish Examiner
