"[Gerald Kersh] is a story-teller of an almost vanished kind - though the proper description is perhaps a teller of 'rattling good yarns'...He is fascinated by the grotesque and the bizarre, by the misfits of life, the angry, the down-and-outs and the damned. A girl of eight commits a murder. Some circus freaks are shipwrecked on an island. A chess champion walks in his sleep and destroys the games he has so carefully planned..." (TLS). "Beneath his talented lightness and fantasy, Gerald Kersh is a serious man...[He] has the ability create a world which is not realistic and which is yet entirely credible and convincing on its own fantastic terms". (New York Times). "Mr Kersh tells a story; as such, rather better than anybody else". (Pamela Hansford Johnson, Telegraph).
