Has Richard Milward written Britain's first credit crunch novel, asks Irvine Welsh
Irvine Welsh writing in The Guardian, Saturday 14 February 2009
Richard Milward's first book, Apples, announced the arrival of a highly original talent. I was taken by the novel and, like many writers, both established and aspiring, was impressed to the point of jealousy that a man of such tender years - he's still only in his mid-20s - could possess the motivation and comprehensive talents required to execute such a successful debut. So, fearful of the possibility of "second album syndrome", I picked up Ten Storey Love Song with a sense of foreboding.
