A brilliant novel. It is sadly comic and comically sad -- Anthony Burgess
He was a genuine comic writer, probably the best after P. G. Wodehouse ... He had a lasting influence and was a very good novelist -- John Mortimer
A bloody funny lovely bloody book... A genius at full throttle * Financial Times *
In these explicit days, Mr Amis is the laureate of the unsayable, the literary it man * Sunday Telegraph *
