Praise for One Hot Summer

“Barker’s language is a cool mix of first person narrative and angst driven, almost twitchy self-reflection.” MARSocial

"Ian Barker writes like Nick Hornby's lesser-known - but every bit as wise and poignant - cousin. England in the '70s has never been so fun; a must for anyone who came of age during that wild, weird, and quite literally woolly time."
