Reviews

    Irvine Welsh
  • Extraordinary, ambitious, bitingly, laugh-out-loud satirical . . . quite simply, a must-read

    Daily Mail
  • Wildly inventive, funny and superbly original

    The Times
  • Funny and exciting, Neate is never less than vivid, whether describing the hideous conditions of an African prison, or a run-down pub in London. Excellent

    Daily Telegraph
  • A corrosive and blistering satire on colonialism and an eloquent, angry and relevant novel that speaks its own truth to power

    Sunday Telegraph
  • A multi-layered, jam-packed and often satirical novel rich in ideas and argument. Neate's most inventive book to date . . . invites comparisons with David Mitchell's genre-busting Cloud Atlas

    Guardian
  • Wonderful, impressive, fascinating. Neate is always an engaging and sharp writer

    Independent on Sunday
  • Witty and acerbic dialogue, an unflagging comic plot, upbeat entertainment

  • A very funny take on Englishness, colonialism and the search for authenticity

    Financial Times
