Irish Novel of the Year FINALIST 2015


“This urban fairy tale delivers something that is both subtle and profound in its examination of the human soul. Magically delicious.” — Kirkus Reviews

“A whimsical jaunt through Dublin and a modern take on many old Irish folktales…Humorous, charming, and original.” — Booklist

“Inventive, funny and, ultimately, moving.” — Claire Kilroy, The Guardian 

“Full of action and humour as its beguiling narrator takes her surreal jaunts around the capital in search of a portal to another world. …The black comedy gives the book a jaunty quality that complements the dazzling trip around Dublin.” — Sarah Gilmartin, The Irish Times

“Delightfully quirky… Vivian’s voice alone is enough to keep us reading, charmed by her unique brand of manic, word-hoarding wit.” — The Irish Independent 

“The book’s style calls to mind The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon. Engaging and humorous.” – The Dublin Inquirer
