Review:

"I began Under the Frog on a crowded double decker in a London traffic jam...and soon found myself laughing like an idiot... It is a triumph...painfully moving, it is also uproariously funny" ( Guardian)

"A remarkable first novel" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Original and impressive... Sharp, funny and moving" ( Independent)

"A quite wonderful book... He takes a serious subject....and is seriously funny about it...the result is plausible, insolent, sophisticated and hungry... Glorious!" (Michael Hoffman)

"A funny, slangy, tragic, impeccably researched romp... A richly convincing line-up of skivers, copulators, opportunists and, above all, survivors in the face of oppression" ( Independent on Sunday)

Book Description:

A tragicomic picaresque about two basketball players travelling through war-torn Hungary in pursuit of food, sex and adventure.
