Agnes Day - sub-editor, suburbanite, failure extraordinaire - has discovered disconcerting gaps in her general understanding of the world. Terminally middle-class and incurably romantic, Agnes finds herself chronically confused by the most basic interactions. Life and love go on without her, but with a little façade she can pass herself off as a success. Beneath the fiction, however, the burden of truth becomes harder to bear.

She is a writer with a poet's eye for convincing detail, and touches on the raw emotions of life in a way that is affecting and true. Sceptical, ironic, beautifully resonant prose . . . A splendid novel. ― Sunday Telegraph

A funny, knowing tale of middle-class, middle-twenties angst . . . Cool, resonant and accomplished. ― Independent

Told with irony and insight and some surreally beautiful imagery. At times it made me laugh out loud. -- Sheila Mackay
