"Fast becoming the hit of the summer... At times it's darkly comic, but there's loss and heartbreak, too" -- Laurel Ives * Style, Sunday Times * "Reza has a sketch artist's ability to create pictures and atmosphere with a few careful strokes... Bittersweet, yet beautiful to read" * Daily Mail * "She has a superpower for zeroing in on each beat of an argument, each buried emotion... Moments of simple joy stand out from the vividly awkward domestic tussles that surround them" * The Times * "Sharply observant wit...a rather particular delight...the mistress of subtle detail" -- Louise Jury * Independent * "Happy are the Happy is a spiky, brilliantly observed novel about marriage, infidelity, dreams and disillusion" * Stella Magazine, Sunday Telegraph *
