«The Cutting Room fixes itself among a formidable modern pantheon that includes the novels of Ian McEwan and A.L. Kennedy»

* LA Times Book Review *

«This elegiac, elegant and atmospheric book is an original and compelling first novel. Rarely can such Gothic material have been treated with such subtlety»

* Daily Telegraph *

«Welsh's prose can flit from clipped and short to elegant and graceful . . . As taut a thriller as you'll get; full of unexpected alliances, double crosses and a brutal denouement worthy of classic American hard-boiled fiction»

* Big Issue *

«Welsh succeeds in making Glasgow her own»

* Observer *

«An astonishingly accomplished debut, this is always in my top ten books of any genre . . . Welsh brilliantly draws a gothic Glasgow of despair and decay as she lays bare the depths of human deviance»

* Guardian, Top 10 Scottish crime novels *

«One of the most intriguing, assured and unputdownable debuts to come out of Scotland in recent years . . . A stunning work of fiction»

* Sunday Times *

«A remarkable first novel»

* New York Times *

«I was hooked from page one. Rilke is not Welsh's only great creation. The huge supporting cast of misfits and outsiders . . . are equally memorable. And Glasgow becomes a character in itself: it is oppressive, foreboding - a dark place for a dark tale»

* Guardian *

«Welsh upturns tropes and adds depth, seedy detail and Gothic lyricism to the page-turner framework»

* Telegraph *

«Astonishingly this is a first novel, catapulting Welsh straight into the superstar league, while establishing Rilke as a true original»

* The Times *
