Reviews

"Yannick Murphy is a uniquely talented writer who manages to turn everything on its head and make dark, funny, shocking, and beautiful prose out of the detritus of growing up poor, fatherless, and cockeyed. She is fearless." -- Lily Tuck
"This is a hell of a book. You might not be able to finish Here They Come in one sitting, but it will haunt you till you do. What detail! What characters! I can imagine both Jane Austen and Raymond Carver poring over this masterly novel." -- Frank McCourt
"Yannick Murphy's long-awaited Here They Come is a unique combination of rare linguistic lyricism with brutal and brilliant prose. It is an unrelenting portrait of family, terrifying for its honesty, its willingness to be ugly and elegant. Haunting." -- A. M. Homes
"Murphy flawlessly captures a child's-eye view of a battered society and a battered family. . . . Most impressive of all is Ýher¨ remarkable use of language, the expressive way she puts together ordinary words and images to create surprisingly lovely and moving metaphors." -- Wendy Smith
