Review quote

'A delight to read, regardless of your affection for literary trends... the tenderness of the writing triumphs, infusing the whole book with humanity and optimism' Guardian; 'Offbeat and original... evokes a world straight out of the all-American canvas of Edward Hopper Hopper or the films of David Lynch... a distinctive debut, displaying promising qualities of compassion and humour' Literary Review; 'Critical reviews cite David Lynch as a cinematic analogue, but Poolman's oddballs are a warmer bunch, his askance vision and dialogue closer in tone to the Coen brothers or Hal Hartley' Sunday Times; 'It is a clever blend of the freakish and the homely - essential reading' Options; 'Poolman's loopy humour is truly his own, and quite infectious' Daily Telegraphshow more
