Chris Adrian is the most extraordinary novelist you've never heard of. The book is surprisingly, very funny. And moving. And quite unlike anything I've read so far this century...If you're willing to enter something magical, something dazzling and heartbreaking, then Adrian is a writer for you.
Patrick Ness, Guardian
Bewitching... This magical and fearless work is a near-blueprint of what a novel ought to be
Olivia Laing, Observer
A work of sustained imagination. Interweaving stories and situations that are in turn kitsch, camp, wry and heartbreaking ... a profoundly humane and moving work
