"A brilliant novel. It is sadly comic and comically sad" -- Anthony Burgess "He was a genuine comic writer, probably the best after P. G. Wodehouse ... He had a lasting influence and was a very good novelist" -- John Mortimer "A bloody funny lovely bloody book... A genius at full throttle" Financial Times "In these explicit days, Mr Amis is the laureate of the unsayable, the literary it man" Sunday Telegraph
