Reviews

Snaps and prickles and brings a talented, troubled woman to life. [Stripe] gives an important story a real spark: Dunbar s energy and mischief bubble in the bleakness - GuardianAn impressively accomplished and important first novel. In a beautifully rendered double narrative Adelle Stripe gives voice to a lost genius. Heartfelt, passionate and profoundly relevantStitched together from letters and scripts, newspaper cutting and fractured memory, it is an undeniably harsh, yet fair portrait of one of the UK s most original voices - Yorkshire PostEverything about this novel, the stuff of it, is wondrously, awfully, beautifully alive, as teeming and seething and tragic as Andrea Dunbar's own wild work and life. My book of the year so far
