Reviews

"A Spot of Bother snaps, crackles and pops with humor and pathos. . . . Sparklingly written. . . . Haddon deftly pulls this off with what we can now hail as his trademark tenderness." --Los Angeles Times

"Totally brilliant. . . . Wondrously articulate.... A Spot of Bother serves as a fine example of why novels exist." --The New York Times Book Review

"Superbly entertaining." --The Washington Post Book World

"[Haddon's] craftsmanship is dazzling, his sense of character profound, his kindness toward his creations that of a consummate caregiver. Humorous, occasionally heart-rending and always enthralling, A Spot of Bother is a wonder and a joy." --Chicago Sun-Times
