Reviews

  • They are absolute comfort books . . . All five titles are being rereleased just in time for summer

    The Lady
  • Pop Larkin, Ma and their progeny ... are essentially English of the rich and ribald England of Chaucer and Shakespeare. A superb and timeless comedy

    Scotsman
  • As funny as Evelyn Waugh and as enchanting as Laurie Lee's Cider with Rosie. Don't miss it

    Herald
  • Pop is as sexy, genial, generous, and boozy as ever. Ma is a worthy match for him in all these qualities

    The Times
  • A pulsing comedy of country manners. Just about perfick

    Time
  • Hilarious

    New York Times
  • Very racy, earthy. Rabelaisian
