9780099541431: The Complete Enderby (Vintage Classics)

Enderby is a poet, social critic and Catholic. He may be found hiding in the lavatory where much of his best work is composed, or perhaps in Rome, brainwashed into respectability by a glamorous wife, aftershave and the dolce vita. Whether he is pursuing revenge and inspiration in Morocco, expounding on his notorious sex film on a TV chat show, or writing a hit musical based on the life and work of Shakespeare, Enderby emerges triumphant.

Review:

"The Enderby series are even finer comedies than those by Evelyn Waugh" (Gore Vidal)

"Ferociously funny and wildly verbally inventive" ( The Times)

"Burgess is at his most inventive in these books, especially when he gives us the full text of Enderby's songs and sonnets (many of which are laughably bad). Poetry, Burgess seems to conclude, is rather like shitting: it's really about purging oneself of dead matter" (Andrew Biswell Observer)

"Burgess is the great postmodern storehouse of British writing-an important experimentalist; an encyclopaedic amasser, but also a maker of form; a playful comic, with a dark gloom" (Malcolm Bradbury)

"No less an authority than Harold Bloom rates the Enderby books among the great comic fictions of our time. Certainly Anthony Burgess, that dizzying polymath and flamboyant novelist, never created a more engaging hero than this hapless poet... All in all, these four books, though diverse in tone and character, strikingly exhibit the narrative gusto and linguistic sprezzatura of Anthony Burgess at his best" ( Washington Post)

From the Publisher:

‘Burgess is the great postmodern storehouse of British writing...an important experimentalist; an encyclopaedic amasser, but also a maker of form; a playful comic, with a dark gloom’ Malcolm Bradbury
