    Hey, I very much enjoyed this, and I loved the way you laid the book out. It feels as though you've thought about the e-format, and giving your readers a pleasurable experience. Very best of luck with it.

    This is a haunting, poetic account of subjecty matter that has no right to be this beautiful. Utterly wonderful

    I approach books like this with a high degree of scepticism, but Anne has succeeded in producing a book that is thoroughly researched and utterly grounded. It treads that fine lin between stating the obvious and offering advice that no one short of a saint could stick to. The result is a book that, no matter who you are, or what you have read in the past, will produce more than its fair share of "of course, what a great idea" moments. Highly recommended.

    I'm currently reading Bolano's 2666, and the clever, interwoven narrative on display here reminds me of Bolano's style a great deal. There's a very steady hand on show here, and some very clever, very well-written prose.

    This is a lovely book, a tale wonderfully told with a setting and characters that draw us right into their world and never let us go
  • The Girl on the Swing on April 03, 2010

    This is a beautifully written book, with a great sense of place, superb characterisation, and the sense of an author in control of their work.

    This is a marvellous piece of post-slacker Beat-style prose that draws the reader in and keeps them in its languid grasp till the end. Marvellous
