Reviews

Noah's Ark, Gericault's The Raft of the Medusa and ``an offbeat vision of the Hereafter'' are some of the ingredients of this pyrotechnical work. ``Admirers of Barnes are accustomed to thoroughly unorthodox approaches to the novel, and his latest, while brilliantly entertaining, certainly strains the limits of the genre,'' PW remarked. (Dec.)

"Frequently brilliant, funny, thoughtful, iconoclastic, and a delight to read. Barnes is like a worldly, secular reincarnation of a medieval gloss-writer on sacred texts, and what he offers us is the novel as footnote to history, as subversion of the given, as brilliant, elaborate doodle around the margins of what we think about what we think we know" * Observer *
"You will want to read it again and again, and why not? - there's nothing around to touch it" * Literary Review *
"There is more moral and intellectual fodder, and more jokes, here than you will read in a month of Sundays... storytelling and teaching which captivate, liberate, and above all, enchant" * Financial Times *
"This is a novel like no other - provocative, superbly funny, a wonderful and most original work...gives the reader a sense of ebullient, whooping joy" * Guardian *
