LONGLISTED FOR THE 2016 BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION

‘A beautifully written, funny, moving, life-affirming piece of wonder. I absolutely loved it. I was in love
with pretty much every finely drawn character by the end’ 
– Julie Hesmondhalgh (Broadchurch, Happy ValleyCucumber, Coronation Street)

‘I began this book and couldn’t put it down. The writing’s exceptional. It’s wonderful. Dark, so often painful
– a story of such depth, beauty and rigour. And I cared for everyone. Such a testament to the fragility in
us all. Oh, and funny. Great scenes of funny’ 
– Sarah Winman (author of Tin ManA Year of Marvellous Ways
and When God Was a Rabbit)

‘Humour always tempers Elliott's handling of emotion as she points to eccentricities manifest in us all’ 
– the Guardian
