Very probably the funniest book ever written * Sunday Times * Screamingly funny and wildly subversive -- Marian Keyes * Guardian * Delicious ... Cold Comfort Farm has the sunniness of a P. G. Wodehouse and the comic aplomb of Evelyn Waugh's Scoop' * Independent * One of the finest parodies written in English...a wickedly brilliant skit -- Robert Macfarlane * Guardian *
