• "Its portrayal of the vulgarities of literary London hits just the right note"

    The Times
  • "A rollicking read. Fishwick has a fine ear for the absurdities and pomposity of the in-crowd chatter"

  • "Michael Fishwick's debut is not only brilliant but also different. Packed with unobtrusive felicities of phrase and feeling, this wickedly wide-eyed picture of life in the eighties among the magazines and takeovers, the waif-like women and the strangely pathetic domestic lives of those who live by and among the media is top-notch satire"

    Evening Standard
  • "Michael Fishwick has captured the essence of that nasty decade and its catastrophic insensibility"

    Sunday Times
