  • "Swift's world-famous satire was an instant bestseller...his vision is dark, often verging on the obscene"

    Guardian
  • "It has entered the iconography of western culture as perhaps no other single novel, giving words to the English language and inspiring remarkably diverse acts of homage... A political comedy, an existentialist meditation, a bleak thriller about an outsider caught between worlds...at the heart of Swift's masterwork is an ennobling sadness, a lament for a world gone mad"
