This compelling memoir crystallises the human experience and gives words to the feelings you never knew you had. * Sunday Times Style * Wry, shocking, winningly frank... What is most striking about the collection is its universality. [These stories] urgently need to be told. Pine does so with an honesty and vigour that are always uplifting * Guardian * light on its feet and goes in deep * Deborah Levy * an astonishingly fine book * Dublin Review of Books *
