Recenzii

'A heaving cauldron of black humour ... You'll never look at a stretch of high-tensile agricultural fencing in quite the same way ever again'
'With a tone that wavers as unsettlingly between Ken Loach and Franz Kafka as its locale switches from Scotland to England, Magnus Mill's first novel is a work of rare originality and power ... It is very, very good'
'Extremely unusual, finely crafted and funny'
'Unpretentious, comic and intelligent'
