Industry Reviews

"This short intense study of character and identity is, as one has come to expect from this fine poet, studded with precise but magical notations of the everyday world" * Sunday Times * "It's his Golding-esque way with males stuck in and fighting their way out of tight corners that grants this rite-of-passage novel its special magnetism" * Observer * "Superb...a novel of special quality" * Evening Standard *
