What a great read this is. Cartwright assembles a wonderful cast of characters in this masterpiece of a comic novel * Observer *
A high-class piece of literary entertainment * Spectator *
Urgently topical fiction with its finger on the pulse of earth-shaking events ... Cartwright(1)s fiction has an uncanny habit of catching the zeitgeist in nets of fine-meshed tragi-comic steel * Independent *
Cartwright's novel displays, with triumphant accomplishment, the pleasures and the potency of on-the-spot social reportage * Sunday Times Choice *
A delicately patterned novel about the heroic search for happiness and its ultimate fragility. The comfortable middle-class setting and faintly fairytale ending belie a portrait of family life in which concealment and compromise are never far away. Quietly moving * Financial Times *
Sublime ... While the engrossing story gradually builds to the urgency of a thriller, it is the richly drawn characters who provide the novel's enduring pleasure ... a brilliantly entertaining satire * Sunday Times *
This satire has many strengths - not least of all making the crash understandable to those (like me and, as we now know, bankers) who did not understand it. And there are countless moments of excellence * The Times *
Very cleverly put together, and funny as well * William Leith, Evening Standard *
Caustic and entertaining * Independent *
Cartwright builds his enjoyably satirical comedy of manners ... Cartwright is a sophisticated enough writer to make the predictability of these characters seem like part of the joke, as if to underline the moribund nature of the world he depicts ... a well-paced and absorbing read * Alex Clark, Guardian *
Shady dealings at a venerable family bank provide the backdrop for a masterful chronicle of the way we live now * Observer *
