Review

'A triumph. A brutal, hilarious, compassionate triumph. -- Alison Bell

'I just adored this book. It's timely and dark and poignant and funny. It was filled with such eviscerating compassion and rage; I couldn't get enough of it. I inhaled it in a single weekend, unable to put it down. Meg Mason is a searing talent.' -- Kate Leaver, author of The Friendship Cure --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
