Reviews

  • "Far and away the best novel of the year was A. N. Wilson's angry, passionate and spiritual onslaught on modern Mammon and the media... which should have won the Man Booker prize, but typically was not shortlisted"

    Hugh Massingberd, Spectator
  • "A wonderful, thrilling depiction of media manipulation, corruption, tolerance and promiscuity. It's so good, and so wise, it hurts. It's the late-20th century in a gulp"

    Frances Fyfield, The Week
  • "A real rattler of an entertainment"

    Philip Hensher, Spectator
  • "Blisteringly funny... My Name Is Legion is not one of those soft-centred satires that ducks the issue. It throws down the gauntlet to Fleet Street and asks some tough questions of the newspapers we read"

    David Robson, Sunday Telegraph
  • "My Name Is Legion weaves a compelling modern morality tale of crime and punishment that links the world of the rich and powerful to that of the poor and dispossessed... All of this is highly enjoyable, and kept going with an irresistibly waspish verve"

    Amanda Craig, Independent on Sunday
