Reviews

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

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

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

    -, The Times
  • Pop Larkin is a living, breathing quotable character, cast large in the heroic mould

    -, The Times
  • Busty and lusty

    -, New Statesman
  • A gently, anarchic wish-fulfilling daydream
