Reviews

"Extremely accomplished...very sophisticated."--A.S. Byatt, Guardian
"One of the funniest, most stylish and utterly original debuts in years... To the nebulous mix of motives that inspire human action, Thirlwell brings the clarity of an essayist such as Montaigne and the deadpan humour of Buster Keaton."--Neel Mukherjee, London Times
"Dazzling...clever, funny and original."--Observer (London)
"This book is a literary sensation... Politics really is the novel of the twenty-first century."--Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
"A book you immediately want to give to all of your friends... irresistibly funny and true."--Le Monde
"A new and great talent."--La Repubblica
"A mischievous ménage-a-trois...playful [and] charmingly drawn."--New York Times Book Review
