Reviews

When it comes to contemporary maestros of the short-story form, Helen Simpson is up there with Alice Munro... If they had any sense the 10:10 carbon-reduction campaign would distribute this book for free, such is its power -- Lucy Atkins * The Sunday Times *
The best short story writer now working in English * Financial Times *
In-Flight Entertainment is quite delectable, confirming her as the queen of the comic short story * Sunday Telegraph *
Simpson's gifts are a lyrical vocabulary, an authoritative form, a special funny-sad quality and a subtlety of understanding... Add in political argument, and she is a key voice for our time -- Margaret Reynolds * The Times *
It's all packed with Simpson's deadpan wit - she is one of the most sharply funny writers in England today * Times Literary Supplement *
