What I Did Press Reviews

[A] fine, challenging novel * Mail on Sunday * Excellent . . . Dark but uplifting * Alex Preston * Hugely impressive, gripping, funny and thought provoking * Emily Barr * I loved it! Staggeringly good. Terrifyingly good * Lisa Jewell * This is family life at its most believable: warm and messy, bored and raging. WHAT I DID is every parent's nightmare, but will make you burst out laughing too. I loved it. * Emma Donoghue, author of ROOM * An amusing and unsettling story * Saturday Guardian * The novel brilliantly captures parent-child relations in the raw and the emotions that even the most experienced social worker can't tame * Independent * Gripping, hilarious and tender, this is, without doubt, one of the books of the year * Daily Mail *
