  • A masterpiece

    The Times
  • Flanagan's masterpiece

    Washington Post
  • Lyrical and hilarious, tender and wildly angry by turns, it dazzlingly reconceives the form of the novel

    New York Times
  • A vivid, voluptuous, exhilarating writer

    Sunday Telegraph
  • Hugely original... Passages burn with the intense pleasure of story-making, of the abandon that comes from a seething of ideas and their joyful mutation into words

    Alex Clark, Guardian
  • A seamless masterpiece of the grotesque

    Independent on Sunday
  • Outstanding

    Robert Macfarlane, Spectator
  • As beautiful to look at as it was enthralling to read
