From the Back Cover:

"If its underlying message were not so sinister in its implications, this black comedy would qualify as one of the funniest books of the year." --The New York Times

"Both hilarious and terrifying; I recommend it strongly." --The Guardian

"The casual exactness of the style, witty and spare, entirely justifies the rare honour of a preface by Graham Greene." --The Financial Post
