Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"Now, this reviewer may perhaps be insensitive to some value the book will have for other readers, since he is unsympathetic by conviction with the point of view of the Catholic convert, but he finds it impossible to feel the author has conveyed in all this any genuine religious experience...The comic parts...are as funny as anything he has done, and the Catholic characters are sometimes good, when they are being observed as social types, and get the same kind of relentless treatment as the characters in his satirical books."

Edmund Wilson, New Yorker, 01/05/1946

Review:

"It is very much a child of its time. Had it not been written when it was at a very bad time in the war when there was nothing to eat, it would have been a different book. The fact that it is rich in evocative description--in gluttonous writing--is a direct result of the privations and austerity of the times..."

Evelyn Waugh, Paris Review, April 1962
