Praise

“Written in a beautifully clear style, full of a keen, serious wit … Lukes achieves both lightness and weight in a way many novelists might envy.”—Independent

“This book is a box of delights, often wonderfully funny and always deliciously clever, a contemporary political satire to set among the best.”—New Statesman

“Steven Lukes’s moral fable is in the tradition of tall travellers’ tales from Swift and Voltaire to Lewis Carroll and Samuel Butler.”—London Review of Books

“Knock-out satirical humour.”—Times Literary Supplement

“Lukes manages to equal the pace and flair of Candide.”—New York Times Book Review

“Utterly magnetic.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review
