I loved it. The writing is whipsmart and so witty and what Caroline O'Donoghue says about how women interact with men and work is fascinating. A fabulous and timely novel. - Marian KeyesSo brilliant ... It couldn't really be more timely ... Compelling and illuminating ... I highly recommend it. - Dolly Alderton, The High Low PodcastThis debut shows that Caroline O'Donoghue is one of the brightest stars in the current galaxy of young Irish writers. A future classic. - Jane CaseyAnyone who enjoyed Jami Attenberg's All Grown Up or Sally Rooney's Conversations With Friends will find much to like in Caroline O'Donoghue's darkly funny novel . . . A zippy, astute read - Irish IndependentThis is the cleverest, funniest and most assured debut novel I've ever read. Caroline O'Donoghue is enormously talented, but wears her talent lightly - this book is deceptively, seductively charming and easy, before it turns deliciously dark. It's bold, knowing and so smart - fans of Nancy Mitford or Jay McInerney will adore this, but O'Donoghue's voice is absolutely her own. - Daisy Buchanan, author of How to Be a Grown-Up
