From the reviews of Murphy in the Underworld

    Never less than gutsy
      - Evening Herald
    His stories are essentially symbolic and read as contemporary fables. The tone is invariably ironic with sometimes savage undertones. All the stories are entertainingly readable. So much so that their sting only hits you afterwards.
      - Sunday Tribune
    Given Mr Harte's writing ability, and the evidence of the stories, he may be welcomed as an interesting arrival.
      - Irish Independent
    This is one of the most important story collections for some time. I urge you to read it, you will be surprised, delighted, stunned, shocked, refreshed.
      - Sunday Independent
