Praise

“Incendiary stuff…a really formidable blaze.” —Karl Miller, The Observer 

“Has the comic gusto, the loathing of pretension that made Lucky Jim so engaging and high-spirited.” —Elizabeth Jennings, The Listener
 
“Jenny is the most serious and most successful character in Amis’s work. . . . She is an improbable but convincing blend of sexy good looks with solid domestic instincts, feminine gentleness with the toughness of the slums. One of the funniest scenes Amis has written is the triumph of Jenny as a schoolmistress—twisting arms, dodging verbal filth, and maintaining order among her little hoodlums with a ladylike ruthlessness all her own. Jenny rightly holds the center of the stage.” 
—Ellen Moers, Commentary
