“Original, strange, funny, profound” (Louis De Bernieres), “A literary novel, with prose like music” (Sophie Duffy), “an intriguing… investigation into the inescapability of personal and political history” (Times Literary Supplement)
Take Me Home:
“Taylor’s account… turns its back on the cliches of the genre to which it seems initially to belong… Instead, there is black comedy to be extracted from the story… poignant” (Sunday Times), “affecting and erudite memoir… startlingly acute” (Irish Times), “It… stands as a fine testimonial to man whose life was a mystery” (Guardian)
