From Publishers Weekly
Burgess's ambitious study of 20th-century history centers on the stormy relationship between an effete, popular novelist and a Faustian priest.

"Crowded, crammed, bursting with manic erudition, garlicky puns, omnilingual jokes... which meshes the real and personalised history of the twentieth century" -- Martin Amis "Burgess is the great postmodern storehouse of British writing-an important experimentalist; an encyclopaedic amasser, but also a maker of form; a playful comic, with a dark gloom" -- Malcolm Bradbury "Enormous imagination and vitality - a huge book in every way" Sunday Times "A hellfire tract thrown down by a novelist at the peak of his powers" The Times "In all ways, a remarkable book" -- Paul Theroux
