"The devastatingly sustained black irony stands comparison with Swift's A Modest Proposal. It is, I think, Amis's finest achievement to date" (Financial Times)
"Extraordinary - Ironic inversion is essentially a comic device, but its trickery here yields results that are rigorously grave" (Independent on Sunday)
"An icy, hard read - Amis is at his intriguing, powerful and heedful best" (Time Out)
"Amis's most daring and ambitious novel" (Daily Telegraph)
