• Few writers think and talk so beguilingly. This book is wonderfully funny. And intelligent. And moving

    Independent on Sunday
  • Quicksilver clever and allusive

    The Times
  • Scintillating... It's funny, quick on the draw, and knows when to soften the gaze. It reads so smoothly, the pages seem to flip themselves

  • A writer of rare intelligence. He catches the detail of contemporary life with an uncanny forensic skill... He is, as always, a superb ironist, a connoisseur of middling, muddling, modern England

    London Review of Books
  • A wonderfully wistful and funny novel
