Every piece in Sayle's marvellous second collection combines strangeness and familiarity to moving and hilarious effect * Independent * The stories in his new collection, THE DOG CATCHER, won't disappoint fans of Sayle's comedy. * Metro * I read these short stories with real pleasure. A few of them are superb; none is without something to enjoy. * Daily Telegraph * A finely-crafted blend of perceptive storytelling and acerbic witticism, darkly humorous. Sayle's compassion shines through everything, as the characters seem to head steadily downhill, each as recognisable as they are unforgettable. He lays bare the intirgues of contemporary life with a style and clarity that's impossible to ignore and his penetratingly accurate descriptions prove hima thoughtful commentator on modern life. * The Good Book Guide * The Dog Catcher is filled with the black comedy, biting satire and quixotic characters which are his stock-in-trade. * Alexei Sayle, ThE Sunday Business Post * More twisted but incisive humour from Alexei Sayle in this, his second book of short stories. Savagely and hilariously attacking many of today's 'types', each of these tales are bazaar yet completely believable. * The Sticks * Dark and unsettling, but leavened with a dry sense of humour * Evening Standard *
