Vivid, splashy and mesmerising * Independent * The ability to evoke compassion and sympathy for a character, to make you feel part of their destiny is what makes "My Friend Leonard" so engaging. * Reading Chronicle, James Cleary * Dangerously addictive * Tatler * Frey is in a class of his own in inventive, idiosyncratic style * City Life (Manchester Time Out) * My Friend Leonard is a most rewarding experience. * Wales on Sunday * Picassos and promise, racketeering and respect ... a stark and moving tribute to a complicated but loyal goodfella * Independent on Sunday * An extraordinary tale of life after prison with a dangerous, delightful friend * Big Issue * When a book proves difficult to put down, you know you're on to a good thing. * Sunderland Echo * A sobering and fascinating account of one of the darkest periods of England's history. * The Good Book Guide * He takes you inside his world of pain, and it's like a small, brightly lit cell ... Life, Frey tells us, is pretty disturbing and weird when you're out of your head. But try living it sober * The Spectator * When a book proves difficult to put down, you know you're on to a good thing * Irish News * My Friend Leonard will go some way to cementing his reputation as one of the finest young writers around. * Irish Examiner * 'Beautiful, sad, potent, irresistible' * Elle * The idea of reading about the road to recovery of someone whose lifestyle I could neither condone nor understand didn't inspire me at all. WRONG!!! Within two pages all prejudice was forgotten and I immediately felt an empathy with the main character.' * Jane Eyre, Leeds *
