What people have said about Degsie

‘Darkly comic and lightly serious. Brilliant!’ – Camilla Z Nightingale, writer.

‘An unusual and captivating story, with subtle humour and a realistic atmosphere.’ – Peter Lavender, Senior Research Fellow, NIACE

‘A sobering and fascinating treatment on the themes of mutual understanding and survival in an indifferent world. I’ll be thinking about it for some time, and I’m glad I’ve read it.’ – James A. Murray
