'A delight to find something new ... funny, moving, horrifying and compelling'
Times Literary Supplement
'FitzGerald ... is adept at arresting openings, tense cliffhangers and tumultuous climaxes'
'Bloody Women is delicious, ingenious, inventive and mordantly funny. Helen FitzGerald has a real skill for making the totally absurd and goofy, thoroughly logical and reasonable.'
