Welsh's ear for dialect doesn't fail him in this worthy successor, and his fans won't be disappointed.
Welsh writes some of the nimblest comedies around... [His] characters are a pack of solipsistic misfits...forever in pursuit of daft projects and concocting improbable rackets, the intricacies of which Welsh weaves together to hilarious effect.--Laura Miller
Damn if Welsh can't write the hell out of anything!--Ken Foster
