What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Very funny, finely written... Bottleneck entertains with an ease that seems a distant memory by the time the arresting finale comes fully developed... Bottleneck is a pleasure to recommend." No Borders

"Outstanding... well-written... an extremely compelling hour." Telegraph

"An explosive tale of the tricky journey to manhood... [Luke Barnes] emerges from this year's Fringe as a red-hot writing talent to watch." Independent

"Devastating and complex. The writing is nuanced and intelligent... urgent, fresh, full of rage... razor-sharp writing... [a] furious snarl of a plya." Exeunt
