INTERVIEWS and REVIEWS
‘I hate those Kitchen Sink Dramas. They’re so clever and funny and succinct, it kills me that I can’t come up with anything that good.’
‘Kitchen Sink Drama is my ideal book. With a wonderful economy of language it perfectly captures our funny ways. The stories are so droll and the lovely pictures so wise.’
‘Somehow, Paul Connolly manages to convey in 100 magic words what takes the rest of us thousands.’
‘There is a gentle, quizzical humour at play in these bite-sized vignettes…an intriguing example of what can work in such an abbreviated form.’
