Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
"He is arguably the finest comic novelist working in Britain today. Indeed, he may just be the finest comic anything working in Britain right now... Canter's prose is achingly funny...it is also vital, acute, literary and oddly moving." -- James Kidd * Independent * "Brilliantly good - so precise and well-observed and witty, and also one of the few books I've ever read that manages to be both tense and funny" -- Craig Brown "Hilarious... Smart, confident and, in places, eye wateringly upfront" -- Elizabeth Buchan * Sunday Times * "Powered by Jon Canter's sharp and original wit and his constantly fizzing prose...an acute and very funny novel about the perils of rural life and of falling a little bit in love with your next-door neighbour" * Daily Mail * "As an advertisement for either urban or rural living among self-satisfied characters, Worth is a toe-curling horror story; as a cheeky and well-directed poke in said characters' eyes, it's a winner" * Independent on Sunday *
