• Howard Jacobson is one of the funniest writers alive... His writing pulsates with nerve and edge; it is colossal in its comic precision; at its best it simply tears you apart

    The Times
  • Lucky Jim undated... Witty, observant, clever, a first-rate entertainment and something more besides

  • Jacobson's humour is unashamedly savage and his jokes as sharp as a switch-blade... comic vitriol worthy of Evelyn Waugh

    Sunday Express
  • The funniest book I’ve ever read… Every line is funny in a cutting, clever way

    Sophie Hannah, Daily Express
  • Every word of this novel rings true, and nothing is funnier than the truth. But as a master of creating laughter on the edge of pain, Jacobson also likes us to think

    Rosalind Miles, Week
