'At once taboo-breakingly funny and sentiently profound ... astonishing' INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY 'Rubens is compassionately eloquent. She also, as always, gleefully extracts comedy from the most unlikely sources' DAILY TELEGRAPH 'A vision of old age that owes nothing to political correctness ... honest and humane' INDEPENDENT 'Hilarious ... intelligent and funny, Rubens' splendid prose is untainted by phoney sentiment ... read it and don't weep' EVENING STANDARD 'Written with scathing wit.' TIME OUT 'Bernice Rubens writes with both humour and sympathy about the indignities of old age in an ingenious novel with a compelling and chilling plot.' EXPRESS ON SUNDAY 'I read THE WAITING GAME avidly, in one evening, and found myself pondering about the characters for several days after I had finished it.' LITERARY REVIEW
