Reviews

One of the great English novels of recent years, a work of sublime literary realism, and a blackly comic meditation on the sins and sorrows of modernity -- Rachel Cusk
Wonderfully dark * The Times *
A terrific debut, written in a present tense which flashes every so often into the past - a trick which Szalay pulls off with confidence... a tense and compelling read * Independent *
A funny, painful, graphic demonstration that our job is a crucial part of our identity.... It's compulsively readable * Independent on Sunday *
Szalay's satire is sharp, though his depictions of rush-hour raise the blood pressure to levels that are not advisable -- Nicholas Lezard * Guardian *
