Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"[T]here is a vein of the kind of lively, inventive observations and digressions which made THE DEBT TO PLEASURE so enjoyable. The book is filled with satisfyingly epigrammatic one-liners....Lanchester has great verbal facility, but he rarely lets fluency become glibness....[A]t its best the book vividly conveys a certain level of London reality rarely encountered in fiction, and confirms John Lanchester as a broader and more flexible talent than might previously have been supposed."

Christopher Tayler, Times Literary Supplement, 01/21/2000

Review:

"[I]t is exceptionally funny and often astoundingly intelligent--but it is quizzical....MR. PHILLIPS is a genuine contemporary philosophical novel, a comedy of manners of thought....With its virtuosity of style, its lack of casual sentimentality, and its easy way with the comic problems of philosophy, MR. PHILLIPS is a contemporary TRISTAM SHANDY."

Adam Phillips, London Review of Books, 03/02/2000
