Praise for ALL FOR YOU:
'O'Flanagan has unleashed a fire-breathing specimen straight out of the age of Germaine Greer in... ALL FOR YOU... Her characters evolve convincingly and you begin to understand why they do the things they do... you start to realise that ALL FOR YOU is actually a nuanced study of modern woman and the pressures they face in their lives, from the "handicap of beauty" to balancing a career with the desire to find a partner... O'Flanagan's latest offering deserves its place on the bestseller list - it entertains, surprises and provokes.' -- The Independent, Ireland
