A marvellous story... You think this is a good book? Right. It is funny, poignant, angry, outrageous and moving. Were it a movie, you'd leave the cinema wondering whether you were crying with laughter or because of the passion and compassion of the story. ... [this book is] the best he has ever written, one that would shift him - were there any justice - from the ranks of "mere" bestsellerdom into the realm of "literature"... it also makes you look again at the way we live
