More great reviews of Big Girl, Small Town

Delighted with the reviews so far for Big Girl, Small Town!

Northern Ireland is currently producing more exceptional writers per square inch than possibly anywhere else . . . Michelle Gallen will most certainly earn her place in the honours list. Big Girl, Small Town is even funnier than Derry Girls, while being just as fraught as Anna Burns’s Booker Prize winner

Sunday Independent

What a voice: I felt as though I knew Majella intimately by the end . . . Big Girl, Small Town is a darkly hilarious novel about small-town life, which manages to be wildly entertaining despite being mostly set in a chip shop – a fine place in which to loiter with such a filthy, funny, clever companion


A winning evocation of a small Irish community whose people burst from its pages. Engaging and satisfying

Daily Mail

Captivating . . . a confident debut with a very memorable protagonist in Majella

Irish Times


Irish Examiner

Darkly funny
