Reviews

Among the reasons for counting Keith Waterhouse among the few great writers of our time is his ability to relate even the wildest manifestations of modern culture to a previous experience of life which was entirely different * Independent * An exceptionally talented novelist * The Sunday Times * Remarkable for the deep and unwavering insight it gives into child behaviour . . . the candour of his vision and the cunning of his art are such that he captures the very essence of the eleven-minus mind * The Times * He gets into the mind of his eleven-year-old, sees the world from a height of three foot six, trembles with him, is defeated in a fight . . . The book is vivid, accurate, perceptive . . . how brilliant - and how honestly - the author makes his original effect * Observer *
