  • "Britain's leading practitioner of black humour"

  • "Tom Sharpe serves up the loudest laughs in literary comedy. He is the great post-Waugh humorist, the Wodehouse who dares plunge into the bottomless vulgarity and hysteria of our times, and a rattling good companion on a train journey"

    Mail on Sunday
  • "The funniest novelist writing today"

    The Times
  • "This is a romp with many of the staples of Sharpe's bestselling comedy"
