"A bright and thoroughly charming book. David Layton writes my favourite kind of prose– clean as a whistle, straight ahead and, most important, irresistibly readable. No froth or curlicues for this guy."
“A novel pregnant with sardonic desire and tender pessimism. David Layton births memorable characters conjoined by their need to confront a future as dispassionate as a fertility clinic and as possible as a newborn child.”
