Críticas: "Irish Independent"
"An engrossing domestic drama as much about family politics as it is about Northern Irish politics....Seiffert's writing is both tightly controlled and almost orchestral in its sweep. You feel every emotion deeply, even as you are conscious of Seiffert deliberately drawing these emotions out. It's a strange but not unpleasant sensation, a bit like observing an operation on yourself while under anesthetic. In this way, Seiffert's writing feels very unusual, with a rare duality of precise writing and big emotional impact....a rare novel."
"The Economist"
"A brilliantly compelling and powerful work, told in beautiful, lean prose."

"A brilliantly compelling and powerful work, told in beautiful, lean prose." --"The Economist"
"Against a backdrop of religious and political divisions, Seiffert's even prose is melodious." --"The New Yorker"
"Intelligent and sophisticated." --"The Times" (London)
"Seiffert continues to go from strength to strength. . . . As flinty and gritty as its characters and their vernacular. . . . Seiffert's tragedy grips while it disturbs and its emotional punch makes it worth persevering until her bitter end." --"Minneapolis Star Tribune"
"A sort of fictional reportage illuminating the life and work of those invisibly holding our cities together. . . . Glimpses into the new Glasgow bring both the book and the city to life." --"Financial Times
"
"A brave, beautiful novel." --"The Guardian" (London)
"Seiffert's ear for speech patterns seems as excellent as you'd expect from a novelist brought up bilingually. . . . [She has a] finely tuned sense of the idea of home in all its seductiveness and fragility. . . . Written with great skill and control." --"Sydney Morning Herald
"
""The Walk Home" may take place in Glasgow, but it is universal in its narrative pursuit. And the sparse emotion of the story's ending will leave a crack in even the most impassive of hearts." --"Toronto Star
"
"Riveting. . . . Further proof of Seiffert's enviable talents as a writer. . . . While the conflict in which her characters are trapped might be ugly, the men and women are captivating." --"The Daily Telegraph "(London)
"Deftly drawn and perceptively observed." --"Daily Mail" (London)
"An engrossing domestic drama. . . . Seiffert's writing is both tightly controlled and almost orchestral in its sweep. You feel every emotion deeply. . . . A rare novel." --"Irish Independent
"
"Exquisitely pared down prose by a writer who really feels for her characters and the tainted lives they are living." --"The Herald" (Scotland)
"Deeply moving. . . . As heart-breaking as it is heart-warming, this delicate and powerful novel will stay with you long after the final page." --"Irish Examiner
"
"Full of intelligence, heart and compassion. . . . A tale of the urban working classes; where they draw their strengths from, their history and where they find dignity. . . . Seiffert has a superb ear for language." --"Scotland on Sunday
"
"Thought-provoking. . . . Seiffert illuminates historical and political issues through harrowing personal drama." --"Publishers Weekly
"
"Energetic, persuasive and lively . . . Seiffert's brio and talent are once again amply on display." --"Kirkus Reviews"
