  • "One of the finest books published this year...Hilarious and tear-jerking in turns." Express
  • "Parsons has written a sharp, witty and wise book straight from his heart. His characters are all nitty-gritty, bounce-off-the-page, real people; his dialogue is brilliant." Daily Mail
  • "Packs an enormouse emotional wallop." Time Out
  • "Wistful, touching and funny, it looks back at the glory days of the family without losing hope for the future. In the end, it is a deeply touching book: a love letter to a son from his father, and to a father from his son." Mail On Sunday
  • "A finely constructed novel that says more about human relationships than a library of psychology manuals, hitting the funny bone and the emotional jugular at one and the same time." Irish Times
  • "A grown-up novel that is simulatneously a heart-rending gripping read and suffused with an irresistable reality." Glasgow Herald
  • "A touching novel...full of quiet tenderness, and written from the heart." Independent
  • "I cried five times and laughed out loud four." James Brown, Observer
