Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“It remains sharp and funny to the end, and presents its characters with the irony and wit of a latter-day Jane Austen.” —Daily Telegraph

“It is dazzlingly written and studded with rapier-sharp lines.” —Financial Times (of London)

“Ferociously funny comedy of outrageously bad manners...From the start, you're riveted.” —Daily Mail

“Has the moral subtlety of Jane Austen but it yanks its characters' illusions down with the off-kilter ease that's usually the trademark of access-all-areas TV satirists like Larry David or Tina Fey.” —Time Out London
