'Not since Paul Murray's Skippy Dies have I read such an original Irish novel.Dazzling, heady fiction. Hughes simply dances on the page, her imagination is riotous, her flawed characters have shape and colour and sometimes heartbreaking humanity. When I finished this book I wanted to return to the start. Immediately. Just to savour it all again.'
