Anmeldelser

«Religion, sex and mania bursting hoof-footed from suburban doors»

Fay Weldon

«Not since The Catcher in the Rye has there been such a believable portrayal of male puberty. The quality of story-telling and the cadence of the prose have a piercing authenticity»

Catholic Herald

«As a technician [Parks] cannot be faulted. His book builds to a terrifying tour de force, made bearable only by the tight prose»

Jeanette Winterson

«He can write, at will, like a modern Henry James, proceeding with composure through the labyrinth»
