  • An exquisitely entertaining fantasy

  • The most exciting and exhilarating of Mr Hartley's novels

  • A brilliant projection of tendencies already apparent in the post-war British welfare state . . . Hartley was a fine writer with a strong moral sense

    Anthony Burgess
  • Hartley spares us nothing; each horrid detail of this nightmare world is expertly driven home

    Peter Quennell
