• "As if Jane Austen were rewriting Terry Pratchett: snorts and chortles plus elegant eyebrow-raising… Bold literary and historical misadventures, told with a twist and a lightness of touch."

    Ian Sansom, Guardian
  • "The reader can enjoy the same level of affectionate detail that the Pythons brought to Monty Python and the Holy Grail… Phillips clearly delights in the world of [King Arthur] and…subverts fantasy motif in refreshing and absurd ways… Very good fun."

    Leonora Craig Cohen, Literary Review
  • "The Table of Less Valued Knights infects Arthurian legend with a brio not seen since Monty Python and the Holy Grail"

    New Statesman
  • "Very funny… It’s a real joy to read a novel that makes you snort out loud with laughter."
