Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
"Majestic, scurrilous and scabrous...Raven's novels are joyous in their characterisation, wit and erudition... truffling in the fertile fields of soldiery, academia, business, politics and publishing. Raven's world -- the upper middle class and upper class -- is peopled by some of the vilest, funniest characters in English literature." --"Observer"
