Reviews

This is a bit of a hidden gem, which reminded me of Leanne Shapton's. -- Sarra Manning * Red Online *
Evocative of masters of American suburbia such as Updike, Cheever, Salter and Richard Yates... Conjuring a dreamily filmic spell, with shades of American Beauty and The Ice Storm, this is a work that can be approached (and rediscovered) a number of ways, all equally rewarding. It's an ideal coffee table or bedside companion, to be dipped into for flashes of pleasure. -- Alasdair Lees * Independent *
A work of genuine brilliance, with Hallberg's relentless gifts gleaming off every page. -- Alasdair Lees * Belfast Morning Telegraph *
