His prose style is intelligent, vigorous and pleasant." -"The New York Times Book Review" "Comic realism echoing Evelyn Waugh . . . nimbly plotted, gracefully written . . . Boyd had endowed British fiction with a welcome depth and liveliness." -"New York Newsday ""A gutsy writer . . . William Boyd is good company to keep." -"Time"""
