Reviews

"Wildly funny." --THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

"This urban fairy tale delivers something that is both subtle and profound in its examination of the human soul. Magically delicious." --KIRKUS REVIEWS

"A whimsical jaunt through Dublin and a modern take on many old Irish folktales...Humorous, charming, and original." --BOOKLIST

"Inventive, funny and, ultimately, moving." -- Claire Kilroy, THE GUARDIAN

"Full of action and humour as its beguiling narrator takes her surreal jaunts around the capital in search of a portal to another world. ...The black comedy gives the book a jaunty quality that complements the dazzling trip around Dublin." -- Sarah Gilmartin, THE IRISH TIMES

"Delightfully quirky... Vivian's voice alone is enough to keep us reading, charmed by her unique brand of manic, word-hoarding wit." --THE IRISH INDEPENDENT

"The book's style calls to mind The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon. Engaging and humorous." --THE DUBLIN INQUIRER
