ANTHONY BURGESS `A long, handsome ingenious novel about war and peace, very funny, very sad, full of closely seen, closely thought detail, wise exotic and entertaining.' IRIS MURDOCH The mid-life crisis, with its fumblings, fudgings and miraculous accidents of self-knowledge, has seldom been better portrayed'. OBSERVER `Brian Aldiss works with such zest and gaiety.' NINA BAWDEN `Full of goodies... funny, human, tough, irresistibly lively.' FINANCIAL TIMES
