‘Craig Davidson is a young author who already displays the sure-footedness of a seasoned pro, and the best of these tightly balled, arrestingly visceral explorations of machismo’s dark recesses uncoil with concussive power’ The Times
‘Stark oppositions often pack the punch in these gritty tales about American tough guys on the ropes . . . This salty collection more than whets the appetite’ Guardian
‘Now, here’s a writer who knows how to unsettle. This collection reaches in to the darkest places and is not afraid’ Herald
‘Davidson writes with a precision and power . . . Excellent’ Independent on Sunday
