Reviews

"As a parodist, he is probably the finest in English." --W.H. Auden


"The most faultless of my contemporaries...I prefer Seven Men to all his other books." --Bertrand Russell "Not even a good comedy is so rare as genuine satire, and when an example of the latter is produced some indulgence in superlatives may be excused. In the case of [Seven Men] it is difficult to restrain praise within the bounds of judgment, for its beneficent, limpid ridicule is an undiluted joy." --The Spectator
