'I would like to claim that I discovered Christopher Coake but you can't really discover writers like this: the quality of the work is so blindingly obvious he was never going to labour in obscurity for any length of time ... We're In Trouble is, for the most part, a book about death - quite often, about how death affects the young ... Sometimes, when you're reading the stories, you forget to breathe, which probably means that you read them with more speed than the writer intended ... They're beautifully written, and they have bottom ... striking and dramatic' Nick Hornby, Believer

[Coake] is wildly engaging as he explores one theme--love in the face of harrowing death (or near-death)--from seemingly every angle. A-."--"Entertainment Weekly"
