First American Reviews
Acerbic and funny
New York Times
Hilarious . . . May writes so wittily, so charmingly, that his characters and twists feel irresistible, shiny, and new. –
Good Housekeeping USA
A funny book…a breezy but barbed meditation on the old chestnut that money can't buy happiness, a satirical morality tale that broadens into a colorful caper... consistently charming. –
Maggie Shipstead, The San Francisco Chronicle

First reviews for Wake Up Happy Every Day
'The sense of jeopardy leaps from the page, and so does the writing. Hooked.'
May has come up with a tantalising ‘what if?’ idea, coloured it richly with suspense, poignancy, religion, drama and genuinely, laugh out loud humour. Judy Riley, Bedfordshire On Sunday Click here to read full review.
