Editorial Reviews

Review

A riot of erudition, both faux and real . . . a triumph -- Richard Hopton * Country & Townhouse Magazine * A love letter to an extraordinary character - one who will stay with you long after you finish the book. -- Jenny White * Western Mail * Wildly original -- Jenny White * Western Mail * Part neo-gothic thriller, part existential road trip, part mortality tale...this book is quirky, witty and impossible to put down -- Jenny White * Western Mail * The Killing of Butterfly Joe is one of the most original books you will read this year. -- Jenny White * Western Mail * A mixture of thriller and great family saga, told in a rich literary style. Like having all the cakes and eating them. If I condensed my thoughts into one word in would be "epic". -- Joy Kluver, Literary Blogger The Killing of Butterfly Joe is such a compelling, unusual, character-rich novel; a great pleasure to read. -- Gerard Woodward, author of I'll Go to Bed at Noon A boldly unique book with an adventure story at its core . . . the biggest joy of this novel is in the brilliantly teased out sense of dread that starts the moment you pick up the book and read the title . . . a beautiful story, and beautifully told too . . . This novel is an adventure in every sense of the word * culturefly.com * A wild-eyed road trip across America, filled with colourful characters, crazy anecdotes, sparky dialogue . . . Brook's writing remains as considered and enchanting as ever. And it's funny too, which is always a wonderful thing * Big Issue * An exuberant, coming-of-age romp . . . a bittersweet comedy of sentimental education . . . larger-than-life fun * Daily Mail * A wonderful entertainment . . . a thoroughly readable and appealingly eccentric book * The Times * --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
