What people are saying about Cheat Sheets

When I first read Edward O’Dwyer’s incredible poetry collection, Bad News, Good News, Bad News, I wondered how he’d ever top it. Then he goes and comes up with Cheat Sheets, an astonishing collection of vignettes about life, love, lust and relationships, which are jaw-droppingly hilarious, tender, strange, potent and weirdly charming – all at the same time. I laughed out loud in public too many times, the laughs often interrupted with sharp intakes of breath, as stories took outrageously i-didn’t-see-that-coming turns. If there isn’t yet a law against this much talent in one single human, then there ought to be. Move over Dan Rhodes. If I have any advice for readers when they sit down with this collection, it is this: pace yourself. Like a packet of Nestlé’s Rolos or a family size packet of salt & vinegar crisps, you won’t want these stories to end.

~ Ali Whitelock, poet and writer, author of and my heart crumples like a coke can and Poking seaweed with a stick and running away from the smell


Congratulations on this collection. These are wicked little gems! Each one was a treat to read.

~ Donal Ryan, author of The Spinning Heart and From a Low and Quiet Sea


Cheat Sheets explores infidelity with a wry and clever wit. It is a side-splitting study on the absurdity of human behaviour.

~ Tanya Farrelly, author of The Girl Behind the Lens and When Black Dogs Sing


Disturbingly knowing and knowingly disturbing, Edward O’Dwyer comes at his delicate subject matter with a playful and razor eye. These are shards that insist on being read, and then read again.

~ Alan McMonagle, author of Psychotic Episodes and Ithaca
