Editorial Reviews


"Asprey's novella is a jeu d'esprit, at once satirising the academy in terms not dissimilar to David Lodge while simultaneously capturing some of the brio and comedy of [Anthony] Burgess's own depictions of the tourist let loose in Morocco in Enderby Outside." - Jim Clarke, International Anthony Burgess Foundation
