What a strange and marvelous novel. The Times
What a strange and marvelous novel. * * The Times * * I really don't think anyone who is at all interested in the study of literature has any business not knowing the work of Stewart Home. * * London Review of Books * * The stuff of which cults are made. * * Time Out * * Stewart Home is one of our most important and interesting novelists. His work has been termed 'avant-guard', but it is much more ambitious than that, as honest as it is unique. This novel will confuse and amuse an leave you wondering what it was all about, and then it will draw you back to the beginning to try to find out. The more twisted and unreal his writing, the more confusing and contradictory his opinions, the more in touch with reality Home seems to become. -- John King * * New Statesman * *
