  • A startling and brilliant biography that reads like a Rake's Progress for the 21st century

    Daily Mail
  • Once in a blue moon comes a biography that has the texture of life-as-it-is-lived, the usual province of fiction... With stealth and sympathy, the biographer has followed his subject's footsteps into all sorts of strange by-ways, most of them frightening or humiliating or forlorn

    Craig Brown, Daily Telegraph
  • Superb... it would be a brilliant picaresque novel, if it were not all true

    Independent on Sunday
  • Utterly gripping... hilarious, heartbreaking

    India Knight, Sunday Times
  • Sympathetic and extremely enjoyable

    Daily Telegraph
