Reviews

  • A triumph ... Phone is the final instalment in one of the most ambitious and important literary projects of the 21st century ... It'll take you a couple of weeks to read all three novels properly. But I can't think of a better way to spend your time. Self's message is a perennially important one, brilliantly expressed: only connect

    Observer
  • Brilliant ... a kind of epic anti-tweet ... what better riposte to a culture that thinks in fewer than 140 characters?

    Daily Telegraph
  • This trilogy will be seen in years to come as one of the most significant literary works of our century, books that reflect and refract the hideousness of our times ... over and above the intellectual sprezzatura of the work, there is, at its heart, an emotional core, a profound sense of grief

    New Statesman
  • A series of fast-paced, laugh-out-loud witty, disgusting and frequently well-observed scenes. He has a sharp ear for dialogue, and woven in and out of the surreal narrative are some of the wisest reflections on the folly of war (in this case the Gulf War) that you are likely to read outside the pages of Tolstoy

    A.N. Wilson, Evening Standard
  • Addictive and compelling. Not to be missed

    Daily Mail
  • There are marvels in store ... Self is profoundly interested in psychosis, paranoia, altered mental states, drug dependency , repetition compulsion and how our minds process time and memory

    Times Literary Supplement
  • Teems with brilliance and originality

    Attitude
  • A stunner

    Mail on Sunday
  • Self has achieved the status of a true classic. He writes books that no one else could possibly write and which everyone admires ... he is in danger of becoming a national treasure... Self's books are radically funny raucous romps, understandable and enjoyable by just about anyone and everyone

    Prospect
  • Self is the most daring and delightful novelist of his generation

    Guardian
