Apples was reviewed with great excitement when it was published in spring 2007:
“Heartbreaking, honest and accurate, Apples reads like the book of Genesis recreated on the set of Shameless.” The London Paper, April 2007
“…streaming with gorgeous language, it’s a frighteningly recognisable glimpse into a particular experience of adolescence.” The Guardian, April 2007
“Apples is an electrifying book, as frightening as it is funny.” The Times, April 2007
“The novel is that most improbable of things: a rewrite of Paradise Lost. None of the characters is on nodding terms with Milton’s epic poem, but Milward clearly is.” Financial Times Magazine, April 2007
