About the Author

Paul Wake is Reader in English Literature at Manchester Metropolitan University


'[Burgess] throws out a continuous firework display of erudition on a limitless range of topics - from astronomy and musicology to the chemical formula for monosodium glutamate and the rhythmic sounds of sexual intercourse.' J.G. Ballard, 'Senses of an Ending', The Guardian, 28 October 1982, p. 16 '[Puma] is not the scorching apocalypse of Lawrence or Yeats but a love song to what would be lost if the world went away: all its colours and tastes and smells and finally forgivable mistakes. It is an old song but a good one.' Michael Wood -- .
