Press Reviews

"The scathing satire of Garments the Living Wear is achieved with ceremonious irony, as the haphazard indulgences of fatuously rich liberals and even crazier and richer crypto-Marxists are guided through the figures of a sexual labyrinth with surpassing misanthropy." - The Times (London)

"Purdy's skill is to involve us in a geometric attachments of his characters while subtly altering the frames of references, creating a reality only to open up new dimensions within it. Suddenly swallows swoop through corridors, rooms fill with cicadas and bats gather outside. In a deft framing device which locates these extraordinary events in flash-back, we are returned at the end to precisely the point we started from, but in between we have been taken on an exhilarating excursion." - City Limits
