'I waited for years in despair for the voice of the next generation to emerge and feared the worst - but she's here, and what a stupendous arrival... heart-wrenching, cheeky, profound and at the same time utterly stylish... an immense achievement.' Ewan Morrison, author of 'Close Your Eyes' 'This is the best thing I've read in years. Brutally honest and exquisitely crafted, this is a book that breaks your heart, slowly rebuilds it, only to smash it to pieces again. I'm seething with envy.' Doug Johnstone, author of 'Gone Again'
