Michelle Lovric is devilishly clever, fiendishly comic and generally just an irresistible novelist. I delighted in every page * Elizabeth Gilbert *
This is a story to sweep you up and spin you about like a mad Irish jig. It swirls you away amid giddy torrents of language into a fantastical, sensual, yet villainously comic world ... As the compulsive power of her narrative increasingly overcomes her plangent mazes of her description, the reader finally realizes that they are in the irresistible hands of a storyteller who portrays not just her period but human nature too * Rachel Campbell-Johnston, The Times *
Just love her humour and magical flamboyance * Sainsbury's Magazine *
Engaging and affecting in a way that will stay with you long after the final page is turned * Irish Examiner *
