MEDIA REVIEWS
They are absolute comfort books . . . all five titles are being rereleased just in time for summer * The Lady *
Pop is as sexy, genial, generous, and boozy as ever. Ma is a worthy match for him in all these qualities -- The * Times *
As funny as Evelyn Waugh and as enchanting as Laurie Lee's Cider with Rosie. Don't miss it -- - * Herald *
Pop Larkin, Ma and their progeny . . . are essentially English of the rich and ribald England of Chaucer and Shakespeare. A superb and timeless comedy -- - * Scotsman *
A wistful daydream about innocence and happiness -- - * Spectator *
The high mid-summer pomps of tree and flower are evoked with gusto -- - * The Times Literary Supplement *
