Reviews

[A Death in the Family] should be read for its blazing account of a feared father set on self-destruction, the boredom and bewilderment of adolescence, and its flashes of sheet brilliance -- Catherine Taylor * i *
A masterpiece... Meticulously detailed, harrowing, oddly beautiful, its depiction of a family's disintegration is one of the most powerful pieces of writing I've read in years * Observer, Books of the Year *
The best book I read this year...full of artistic, moral and technical daring * Guardian, Books of the Year *
Intense and vital...ceaselessly compelling...superb * New Yorker *
This suburban epic, electrifying in candour and eloquence, feels streets ahead of the comparable Jonathan Franzen * Independent, Books of the Year *
Incredibly moving * Irish Times, Books of the Year *
