“All of the Burgess embellishments are here, and they sing alluringly each to each.”

“A reader who delights in succulent phrase, the zest of word play and a saucy paragraph must fall on each new work of Anthony Burgess with ravenous appetite. . . . Burgess at his most characteristic, craziest.”
- Washington Post

- Andrew Biswell, Daily Telegraph
“Alive, lush, lyric, human, witty and wildly comic.”
