Praise for An Accident Waiting to Happen:

"A tough subject, desertion, handled with compelling simplicity as a father and son cope alone in a rough world. Extraordinarily engaging and sensitive, wringing one's emotions." (Sarah Broadhurst, The Bookseller)

"If you were to judge a book by its cover, you might think An Accident Waiting to Happen is a touchy-feely boy's book in the Tony Parsons/Nick Hornby tradition. However, appearances can be deceptive and this is a rather unpleasant book with a remarkably unsympathetic narrator. Dark, unsettling - and definitely not touchy-feely." (Anna Carey, Image Magazine)

"His novel mixes gripping sections with an internal monologue filled with anxiety, confusion and weakness. Disturbing and sometimes irresistible, this is a story that will find a responsive audience in the growing ranks of dispossessed fathers." (Irish Independent)

"Adrian White's debut is irresistible . . . it's like life." (Irish Examiner)

"White offers a porthole on the male dilemma - the pressure to plumb his emotions and articulate them, the quandary of a sense of alienation from his environment. His unflinching honesty, coupled with an accessible writing style, produce an assured debut." (Martina Devlin, Dublin Evening Herald)
