New York Times

It's a feast of a book and, for all its central sadness, a great celebration of life.
Daily Mail

The first eighty pages . . . constitute a reconstruction of a childhood experience which, so far as I know, is unique in the English language . . . [The book] is outstandingly memorable because its genius is the pain of memory.
John Berger

She evokes with power and precision the claustrophobic warmth, the boredom, terror and gaiety of a particular life in a particular time and place . . . a work of considerable distinction.
Sunday Times

Edna O'Brien is one of our bravest and best novelists.
Irish Times

O'Brien's evocative prose shows the chilling hold that history and the dead clamp on the living.
