"A work of genius"The Boston Globe
"From the first sentence of the novel the reader is aware that he is in the presence of a magician [Collier] casts a spell and he does so always with a smile."Paul Theroux
"A wayward masterpiece Whatever this volume has cost you, it is, believe me, a great bargain."Anthony Burgess
"It is impossible to convey the subtle wit which makes you laugh out loud, the beauty and penetrating satire which blend so perfectly into its brilliance."Booklist
"The whole is written with sly humor throughout and is illuminated by splendid similes and metaphors which mark the author as a true humorist."New York Times
