A seminal book. -- Fay Weldon * Washington Post * The first novel to come along in years that takes on deep and Dostoyevskian themes . . . Ellis is showing older authors where the hands have come to on the clock. -- Norman Mailer * Vanity Fair * Serious, clever and shatteringly effective . . . For its savagely coherent picture of a society lethally addicted to blandness, it should be judged by the highest standards. * Sunday Times *
