Dickey is a young Northern Irish author of enormous talent and a writer who really cares about language. I see big literary awards in her future. This novel, about entwining lives in Belfast, is poetic, dark and mordantly funny. Her debut, Tennis Lessons, is also great.

What the Critics are Saying
Susannah Dickey has an uncanny ability to get right to the dark heart of her characters, blending acidic observation with a generous side of kindness. Common Decency is sharp as tacks, extremely funny and deeply moving. This novel is very good company.
