But their grand scheme will have both comic and gruesome consequences, as they are soon to find out...

MEDIA REVIEWS

The most nourishing, satisfying novel I have read in years. I admire the hell out of it - Kurt Vonnegut Jr

Sensual, moving, truly remarkable - Time

Imagine a mixture of Till Eulenspiegel and Ken Kesey and you've got the range of the merry pranksters who hot-rod through Mr Irving's book, tossing flowers, stealing salt-shakers, and planning the biggest caper of their young lives - The New York Times
