  • An invigorating mixture of satire, history, philosophy, morality and linguistic investigation... it reads like a spoof of New Age intellectualism... a lament for the millenium; a brave cry in the wilderness

    Michele Roberts, The Times
  • Articulate, comic, wise, delicate, melancholy, exquisite... a carefully-pulsed breath of a book with an impact that sneaks into one's dreams

  • The Plato Papers is a serious divertissement, a brilliant fabulation that is the product of a playful, engaged, and well-stocked mind... It unleashes large, tolling resonances

    Boston Globe
  • The Plato Papers can be enjoyed as a jeu d'esprit, but for students of Ackroyd it is something more... Richly revealing

    New York Times
