Stephen Cox published a wonderful piece on FEAST DAYS in the new issue of the Literary Review (UK).
He writes: “Impressive . . . For a slim novel, it is notable how many big themes MacKenzie touches on; more notable still are the wit, incision and levity with which he considers globalisation, inequality, gender and class . . . Furthermore, it is not altogether common for male authors to create insightful, believable female protagonists; the fact that MacKenzie does so seemingly effortlessly is another of the book’s triumphs. FEAST DAYS is as funny, interesting and wide-ranging a novel as you will read this year.”
