A collection of rare beauty, insight and empathy. Many of Vicky Grut’s characters find themselves in a no-man’s-land that opens up in the midst of their otherwise ordinary lives.

Wonderful writing, and as glorious an ending as I’ve read in a long time. - Tara27 reviews Live Show, Drink Included

Grut has a beautiful writing style. With simple, well chosen words, she conveys so much, never giving too much away. She is never flowery and often enigmatic.

Read it if you love stories that are thought provoking, clever and surprising. A really great book.

The end of the book, where we learn of the depths of van Gogh's mental anguish, is shocking, and I've never read anything quite like it.

After reading The Yellow House I came to the conclusion that painting was van Gogh's way of communicating effectively with the outside world. He saw art in everything, and art was everything to him.

Vicky Grut reveals her knack for summoning up characters so real they’ll follow you around your house. She is skilled a winding a whole life into a single line of exposition – ‘the sort of person who couldn’t button his shirts in the right order but could tell you about quantum physics if you had a few hours to spare.’

This week @Arnhemsejongen interviews himself: ‘You’re a Dutchman who has been living in England for nearly four years. You follow news from England but also still keep track of news from the Netherlands. What do you think of the coverage of the UK in the media of your home country?’ – Enjoy It’s Not the Economy, Stupid! #Brexit

‘Vicky Grut’s stories are taut, astute stories that draw readers into their recognisable situations and shock with a sudden but credible tilt in perspective.’ @Emma_Lee1 reviews #LiveShow, Drink Included by @VickyGrut
