Critic reviews

"A wonderful, wonderful book: wise, funny, perceptive, compassionate and often unbearably sad. The best British social novel since Jonathan Coe's What a Carve Up!" ( The Times)

Real and gripping

Gripping and heartbreaking, hilarious and tragic, this book shows the less sickly sweet side to love, following the two protagonists through their lives. By the time you have finished it, you will know and love both characters more deeply than your own relations and it will continue to haunt you long after it ends. Highly recommend.
