Yates's prose is as elegant and minimalist as ever... He simply tells the story - in easily comprehensible but perfectly pitched language -- Leyla Sanai * www.rocksbackpagesblogs.com * Read and weep -- Kate Atkinson So consistently well-written, just, unsentimental and sympathetic * Washington Post * Yates writes with a sympathy so clear-hearted that it often feels like nostalgia for his own youth, and yet he is also thoroughly uncompromising in revealing their capacity for self-delusion, their bewilderment in the face of failure * New York Times *
