'An excellent and entertaining read' Daily Mail

'A love story and political comment, a defence of the art of fiction, a masterpiece' Evening Standard

'Rich and splendid...viciously funny and a rip-roaring read' Elle

A Vicious Circle
exposes the corruption of London's journalistic circuit, the horrors of our hospitals and slums, and the transformations caused by motherhood.

Gripping, tender and fiercely funny, it has been instantly recognised as a modern classic about the way we live now.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Line after line of sparkling malice...a fierce and funny book - Harpers & Queen

A novel of rare intelligence and ambition...Funny, insightful, beautifully plotted - Time Out

It makes you laugh, it makes you blub...an excellent and entertaining read - Daily Mail

A plot of marvellous intricacy...it provokes peals of horrid laughter - Observer

Combines wit, panache and extravagance with a penetrating moral sense...delightfully readable and not a little disturbing - Scotsman

A Vicious Circle has the zest and mordant wit of an early Evelyn Waugh and it is a testament to Craig's talent that the characters leap off the page despite their often cartoon-like grotesquerie . . . In an age in which we are seriously lacking comic novels with bite, A Vicious Circle is a wonderful tonic - a work that makes you cry with laughter but also eats unforgettably into your soul - Sunday Telegraph

An excellent novel - Fay Weldon, Sunday Times

A brilliant disquisition on the way we live now...No wonder some people mention it in the same breath as Vanity Fair. Its treatment of ambition, of social rise and fall, warrant the comparison...a hugely entertaining book - Cressida Connolly, The Oldie
