Reviews

[A] sly, emotionally complex collection . . . Each story opens to reveal a whole life spent within the web of a family, chosen or not. Full of gems, this collection is a winner. * Publishers Weekly (starred review) *
Do yourself a favour and read the book. McCracken has delivered a lovely collection of stories loosely tied together by one theme - the bonds of family that fracture and heal as lives are led. * This Is Money *
McCracken has a real talent for exploring what makes an individual unusual when they are entwined with another person, and her stories are sparkling gems of human eccentricity. -- Martin Chilton * Independent *
[McCracken] has a gift for spotting the comic potential in situations many of us have endured... Her prose is stippled with just-so observations. * The Observer *
McCracken is a totally assured performer: even seemingly throwaway perceptions are often memorably poetic, and there is a hint of melancholy under the comedy. -- Phil Baker * Sunday Times *
