Shortlisted for Independent Booksellers' Week Book of the Year Award: Adults' Book of the Year 2012.

'Beautiful and filthy' (Simon Hattenstone, Guardian)

 

'Amusingly peculiar... tender and comic... joyous anarchism... It is good, old-fashioned British humour with the lightest of subversive twists' (Arifa Akbar, Independent)

 

'Artfully entertaining... The stories have a dark, knowing shrewdness about erotic mischief, young and old... As always the writing is tonally perfect, laced with deadpan as well as bedpan comedy' (Simon Schama, FT)
