  • As austerity ripples on in this century, the book's combination of escapism and relevance continues to draw me in. The language is so inventive, the characters so brilliantly (often absurdly) captured, and their behaviour so close to pantomime, that it renders the whole a garishly compelling and thought-provoking read

    F. Scott Fitzgerald
  • A talented and somewhat neglected author... wonderfully imaginative and slightly disturbed

    Daily Telegraph
  • It certainly packs a wallop

    John Dos Passos
