Better conveys the agony of Northern Ireland than all the news items. --John Updike, The New Yorker
One of those secret classics... It s a perfect piece of literature and encapsulates the sadness and terror of what went on in Northern Ireland during... the Troubles . --Colum McCann, New York Times Book Review
This great anti-war fable should have been read and should still be read as a terrible warning. A flawless piece of writing. --Independent
