Review:

"Perfect holiday reading... Daft and...delicious... the Wu Ming clan have pulled off [a] coup... Their blend of outrageous burlesque and offbeat satire sparkles like a bottle of the best prosecco from a worker's-co-op vineyard...as many contented readers will notice this summer" (Boyd Tonkin Independent)

"A sprawling epic... A formidable feat of imagination that moves restlessly between Bologna, Naples, California, Moscow, Dubrovnik and Marseilles... Utterly convincing'" ( The Times)

"A stupendous, charming, provocative and profound novel. It makes most modern books seem paltry in comparison" ( Scotland on Sunday)

"A kaleidoscopic epic...beautifully handled" ( Independent on Sunday)

"'' 54 is a huge slab of sheer pleasure: a thriller with laughs, a crime comedy, a surreal romance, a ripping adventure. Real-life stars drop into the books global plot that draws in a cast of thousands. Ace" ( Sunday Sport)

From the Publisher:

The new novel by the authors of Q. Another international cult success, as extraordinary and bizarre a Cold War/Mafia thriller as that book was a historical novel.
