Reviews

"A very fine book... It's witty and sharp and reads like something by Barbara Pym or Anita Brookner, without ever feeling like a pastiche.
--David Nicholls, bestselling author of One Day
"Small Pleasures is an almost flawlessly written tale of genuine, grown-up romantic anguish. Written in prose that is clipped as closely as suburban hedges, this is a book about seemingly mild people concealing turbulent feelings...." --Johanna Thomas-Corr, The Sunday Times
An irresistible novel--wry, perceptive and quietly devastating.--Hephzibah Anderson, Mail on Sunday
"Small Pleasures is a tender and heart-rending tale that will draw you in from the first page and keep you gripped until the very end. Exquisitely compelling!" --Ruth Hogan, author of The Keeper of Lost Things
"A brilliant book... A love story between people who are not usually the leading players in love story... I found it incredibly absorbing.--Kathleen MacMahon, The Irish Times
