Praise for Brixton Nights by Amy Tollyfield
(published 25/08/2022 by Olympia Publishers, London):

‘[Tollyfield]’s prose is evocative and atmospheric … An authenticity and pathos that resonate. A meandering but often affecting tale of ties that bind—and leave deep marks’ – Kirkus Reviews
‘A powerful and enticing realist novella’ – LoveReading UK
