Praise

“A grotesque, horrifying, repellent and gorgeous book; A Clockwork Orange come to life.” —John Gregory Dunne 

“An important, perhaps prophetic, book … both exciting and sad at the core…. [Buford is] a superbly talented reporter.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Brilliant … one of the most unnerving books you will ever read.” —Newsweek

Like Michael Herr or Ryszard Kapuscinski, Buford has witnessed events which can only be compared in intensity to those of a war … an unflinching look into the festering soul of England … a fuckin’ great read.” —David Byrne

Animated, witty, and so pungent you can taste the stale lager.” —Washington Post Book World
