  • The book reassures that no matter how many times you've done something or been somewhere, the humiliations remain as burning, the pleasure as sharp as ever

  • A funny, original, stinging-as-a-nettle, soothing-as-a-dockleaf read

  • A carefully observed, caustic portrait of two opposites - one prickly, one plodding - and their troublesome but enduring friendship

    New York Times
  • A pleasure from start to finish

  • Every described with the accuracy of an X-ray and the urgency of poetry

    Penelope Mortimer, Daily Telegraph
