‘Freudenberger is most certainly the genuine article.’ Guardian
‘Freudenberger’s novel unfolds into that rare thing, a work of poetics itself, a medication in art. The fact that she does it with such wit and compassion, such generosity of mind and heart, is miraculous.’ The Times
‘A fiercely intelligent first novel . . . Lots of sharp, funny dialogue, it has something of a Lost in Translation feel.’ Eve Magazine
‘Written in prose as clear as birdsong, the novel grips from first to last.’ Scotland on Sunday
