• "It is a rare book in that it has the ability to make you laugh out loud and be deeply moved within a few pages."

    Adam Staten, British Journal of General Practice
  • "For me, the greatest novel in the English language"

    Tony Kent, Daily Express
  • " Wildly original, brutally gruesome, a dazzling performance that will outrage as many readers as it delights. Vulgarly, bitterly funny, it will not be forgotten by those who can take it"

    New York Times
  • "Blessedly, monstrously, bloatedly, cynically funny and fantastically unique. No one has ever written a book like this"

    Financial Times
  • "The greatest satirical work in the English language"

    Philip Toynbee, Observer
