• "Lots of nakedness, quite a few surprises. His novels have the brazen, daring timidity of love letters you know you'll never post"

    Sunday Times
  • "The book is bursting with sex and beauty, wound together profoundly and pornographically. It is bountifully Rabelasisan and intensely refined. I have never read anything quite like it. Misogynists will definitely not like The Fermata; there is not one iota of violence towards or contempt for women in this book. Wildly exhilarating and confirming. The Fermata should be celebrated"

    Mary Gaitskill
  • "Witty, dry and thought-provoking, a great addition to Baker's unique observatory of contemporary life"
