"One of the funniest, most penetrating novels since the early Aldous Huxley." - Time; "Nigel Dennis - no kin of mine, alas - tells a very funny story packed with secret smiles, soft snickers, and hearty laughter. His writing recalls Evelyn Waugh, Nancy Mitford, Angus Wilson, and even sometimes George Bernard Shaw, yet it is unmistakably and deliciously original. To read him is to love him." - Patrick Dennis; "I have read no novel published during the last fifteen years with greater pleasure and admiration." - W.H. Auden
