  • Amis has brought off the feat of satirizing his contemporaries while making them both funny and, in a bizarre way, moving

    Peter Ackroyd
  • Scurrilous, shameless and very funny

    Time Literary Supplement
  • Extravagantly sexual-highly enjoyable

    Evening Standard
  • Amis's arrogantly assured manner is a formidable weapon, spraying the target with disdainful wit, ingenious obscenity, astute literariness, loathing, lust, anxiety and an all-pervading hyper-self-consciousness

  • A magnificent novel, a masterpiece really, its prose energetic, angry, honest and so funny

    Andrew Billen, The Times
