Terrific... Both funny and serious, and (as always wth Amis) very very on-the-money' * Richard Ford *
This is classic Amis * Sunday Herald *
The novel is something of a joy...he makes the dreadful funny, the grotesque poetic * The Times *
It's a Big Mac made from filet mignon... It is a book of lovehate. It is a powershake... A book that looks at us, laughs at us, looks at us harder, closer, and laughs at us harder and still more savagely. It is every inch the novel that we all deserve. * Observer *
The broadest comedy he has ever published... Lionel is a fantastic brute... I laughed a lot. Amis's delight in the incorrigible is genuinely Dickensian... This is a verbally inventive be enjoyed in the same spirit as Little Britain... It's a hoot * Evening Standard *
