Everything St. Aubyn writes is worth reading for the cleansing rancor of his intelligence and the fierce elegance of his prose
New York Times Book Review
The prize should go to Mr St Aubyn, if only for the parodies from his fictional shortlist . . . It must have been fun to write and is fun to read
Country Life
[An] intricate satire, written with restless wit . . . A gorgeous viciousness is present . . . St Aubyn's ear for fakery never falters . . . This novel is a pleasure to read
Observer
