• "A delightful mix of both wit and profundity. The combination of rich vocabulary, a decent plot, and Isler's unnerving ability to assume the identity of his characters can't help but result in a novel you'll wish was longer!"

    Time Out
  • "Alan Isler, as usual, manages to combine almost Wodehousian comedy with painful, unsentimental tragedy"

    Sunday Times
  • "A superb new comic novel... wildly funny... Like the stories of Malamud and Singer one senses that the true hero of Clerical Errors is the story itself"

    Independent on Sunday
  • "Terrifically funny. Isler has once again come up with a winning voice for his narrator, by turns witty, bawdy and lugubrious"

    Financial Times
  • "A rich, rambunctious novel"
