Reviews

  • Amis's backwards world is rigorously imagined. It is a world of pathos and cruel hilarity - but the crux, the test of his vision, is what he does with Auschwitz

    Guardian
  • The devastatingly sustained black irony stands comparison with Swift's A Modest Proposal. It is, I think, Amis's finest achievement to date

    Financial Times
  • Extraordinary - Ironic inversion is essentially a comic device, but its trickery here yields results that are rigorously grave

    Independent on Sunday
  • An icy, hard read - Amis is at his intriguing, powerful and heedful best

    Time Out
  • Amis's most daring and ambitious novel

    Daily Telegraph
