Reviews

Kennedy is described in the literary press as not only one of our finest, but also one of our most humane, writers * Church Times *
Day confirms, if confirmation were needed, that Kennedy is a singular, superlative author. I hope that the judges of this year's Man Booker prize pay particular attention to it -- Stuart Kelly * Scotland on Sunday *
Kennedy does bleak the way the Russians do epic; unremittingly, awesomely and undershot with redeeming humour -- Gillian Bowditch * Sunday Times *
Once again, Kennedy brilliantly interweaves over-wrought internal dialogue with external outrageous acts. The unfolding tenderness of nature and of amity blend superbly with the casualness of daily horror -- Catherine Taylor * Independent on Sunday *
Day is more than a novel, it is an investigations into the difficulties of being alive -- Eileen Battersby * Irish Times *
