Review:

"Amis has brought off the feat of satirizing his contemporaries while making them both funny and, in a bizarre way, moving" (Peter Ackroyd)

"Scurrilous, shameless and very funny" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Amis's arrogantly assured manner is a formidable weapon, spraying the target with disdainful wit, ingenious obscenity, astute literariness, loathing, lust, anxiety and an all-pervading hyper-self-consciousness" ( Observer)

"Extravagantly sexual...highly enjoyable" ( Evening Standard)

From the Publisher:

Winner of the Somerset Maugham Award
