Industry Reviews

The purpose of this book is to entertain and it does exactly that. By the last paragraph, I was wondering exactly how long I'd have to wait for Alexei Sayle's new novel. - Gary Morecambe, Daily Mirror

Compelling and believable characters...pacy and brusque - Spectator

Darkly humourous...[an] eccentric, bleak and wonderfully self-assured novel. - Daily Telegraph

Like a psychopathic ringmaster in a circus, Sayle ushers in his cast of characters...He makes them perform their surreal little dance, about vengeance, and guilt, and the casual brutality of life, and then, with a shrug, he feeds them to the lions. - Independent
