Jon Day writes regularly for the London Review of Books.
This is what he had to say about Flirting at the Funeral:
“A fine ear for dialogue, with people speaking at cross purposes throughout. And I liked the noir-y flourishes coupled with careful poetic observation. Apposite themes, too, as we descend ever further into the economic gloom. I read Flirting as a dramatisation of the vicissitudes of revolutionary memorialising in all its forms, though there’s more here than that of course.”
