Praise for Promising Young Women:

  •  I loved it. The writing is whipsmart and so witty and what Caroline O'Donoghue says about how women interact with men and work is fascinating. A fabulous and timely novel. (Marian Keyes)

  • So brilliant ... It couldn't really be more timely ... Compelling and illuminating ... I highly recommend it. (Dolly Alderton, The High Low Podcast)

  • This debut shows that Caroline O'Donoghue is one of the brightest stars in the current galaxy of young Irish writers. Promising Young Women is funny, clever, upsetting, fierce and absolutely of its time. A future classic. (Jane Casey)

  • I loved Promising Young WomenIt's like Bluebeard crossed with The Yellow Wallpaper neck-deep in zeitgeist. If Angela Carter was stuck in a soulless corporate job this would be the dark, delicious result (Sharlene Teo, author of Ponti)
