'Weldon, like Dickens, can have her readers perched on the edge of their chairs with excitement by the end of the first page and hold them there in a state of riveted curiosity until the last words. The Sixties background is impeccable and deftly evoked, the style is sharp and the jokes are acidly funny.' - Evening Standard
'The carnival of subsidiary characters is as entertaining as in any of Dickens's novels.' - Spectator
'Weldon at her best ... complete with comic cuts, savage morality and deep, unrivalled reader satisfaction. Buy it you must.' - Company
'A comedy high-wire act. There is huge skill and discipline beneath the baggy trousers and red nose of a Grand Guignol adventure story. The novel is funny, moves at great pace, and is richly entertaining.' - The Times
'Wise, witty and wickedly wonderful.' - Gay Times
'Weldon has talent to burn. A joy, a capricious, effervescent fairytale.' - New Musical Express
'Weldon at her brilliant, unputdownable best.' - SlimmingAbout the Author:
