Reviews

"It is written with lovely, controlled precision. His descriptions deliver little aesthetic shock-charges of pleasure...There are delights of simple recognition-but there are also deeper emotional depth-charges" * Sunday Telegraph *
"Striking...The Book Against God is a gifted and winning first novel, neatly knotted at the end" * Guardian *
"Thought-provoking and full of sharp-eyed observations of characters and places" * Daily Mail *
"At once hilarious and haunting... It keeps your attention in every sentence" -- Bernard O'Donoghue * Irish Times *
"A work of skilful craftsmanship, which teasingly engages and disengages one's sympathies" * The Economist *
