"A subtle, delicately nuanced, impassioned, courageous, elegantly formulated and far-reaching examination of the state of our ailing nation" -- Geoff Dyer * Observer * "A vivid and sensitive writer...clever, engaging and palpably sincere" * Spectator * "This outstanding book works on one level as cultural commentary ... Anthony's book skilfully interweaves autobiography with cultural and political commentary. It is sparely written, frequently affecting, and his judgements are morally sane and sensible" * Sunday Telegraph * "A timely, pertinent and brilliantly argued book" -- Nick Hornby "Beautifully written, illuminating and moving" -- Roy Liddle * Sunday Times Best Books of 2007 *
