"I don't take a breath as my eyes dart through the chapters from this modern outsider. UV Ray's novella, The Migrant, wasn't written to make us feel all warm and fuzzy, this is off the scale uncomfortable and from deep in the gut, the best kind of writing always is.
"His poetry and thoughts fly into the night, the search for human connection, he knows his place within the stars and time, believes in nothing, embracing his foibles, his anger and vision of the world. This is great writing, I wasn't expecting to snort it all in a few hours but I did. Unstoppable."
--- Abbie Foxton, AbbieFoxton.com

"It's another razor-sharp slice of poetic urban noir from ray who, once again, unflinchingly shows us the grim and comically absurd lives of people who are hanging onto the frayed edges of British life by broken fingernails. Losers and lowlifes. The dissolute and the dissipated. The fag ends of life.
"The prose is delirious, the characters are grotesque, the philosophy is both nihilistic and romantic. As tender and funny as it is brutal, The Migrantís recurring theme is that of loneliness and alienation."
--- Paul D. Brazill, from the introduction to The Migrant
