Editorial Reviews

Publisher's Weekly
"An exuberant and gutsy celebration of life... Superbly earthly in its treatment of love and sex, nicely offset by a prevailing mood of tenderness."
Saturday Review Syndicate - John Barkham
"For all its shock value (and its sex is frequent and specific), this is a novel you will gulp down and remember."
The New Republic
"It is impossible, in a short space, to give a work so rich, complex and subtle, its due; here is one of the finest novels out for a long time."
The New York Times - Eliot Fremont-Smith
"Chock-full of action, sex, punchy set-pieces... rollicking zest... nice, subtle surprises of observation."
