Moran has the poet's ability to finds the remarkable in the commonplace ... a beautiful little book: an argument, if ever there was one, for staying home this summer, finding the nearest traffic jam and enjoying it. (Craig Brown Mail on Sunday, *****)

A beauftifully-written, quiet masterpiece ... Moran's genius is to show us what was right in front of us all along' (Bee Wilson Sunday Times)
