What else? Malarky was also mentioned by Colum McCann in the Sunday Independent, a review ran in the Irish Independent, and it was Novel of the Week this past Sunday in The Mail, which is the largest Sunday-circulation paper in the UK. We're told a Guardian review is forthcoming soon. Till then, enjoy!
"Schofield’s portrait of a woman whose personality is beginning to fragment after a lifetime in an emotional vacuum is both blackly comic and deeply felt. There is something heroic about the desperate resilience of Our Woman, and the originality of her depiction by Schofield, that leaves an indelible trace on the reader’s mind."—Jane Shilling, The Telegraph
"Brilliant … laced with dark wit and quirky lyricism, this is a striking portrait of a society in flux and a woman on the edge."—The Mail
