Amis’s vision of adolescence is an unvarnished, terrifying and hilarious one."– New Yorker
"A truly sexy and funny book…a delight…the best teenage sex novel since Goodbye Columbus." — New York
"Amis is a born comic novelist, in the tradition that ranges from Dickens to Waugh…He can find laughter in catastrophe and knows that morality shifts sneakily between absolutes and ambiguity…Amis’s mercurial style…can rise to Joycean brilliance."
