Praise

“The book that perhaps best expresses Cossery’s characteristic outlook on life and is still his best-known work. Marked by Cossery’s trademark elegance, the novel is humorous and reflective by turns. This is a world of simple pleasures, charming humour and the mockery of anything that might smack of authority.”  —David Tresilian, Al Ahram Weekly

“Albert Cossery…ought to be a household name. he’s that good: an elegant stylist, an unrelenting ironist, his great subject the futility of ambition ‘in a world where everything is false.’” —David Ulin, Los Angeles Times
