"The Thousand Deaths Of Mr Small is the best novel that Gerald Kersh has yet written...Charles Small, successful advertising expert and miserable man, turns over in his mind the 'stinking, sour, stagnant, untransmitted mass' which is his life...This book has a rich, warm quality; long and full of detail, it teems with humour, satire, incident, character; in a word, with life." (Yorkshire Post). "It see-saws from side-splitting dialogue to such catalogues of loathing and revulsion as have rarely been seen in print, from outrageous farce to sudden compassion for the Smalls of this world, who find Hell enough in 'the eternal contemplation of themselves as they made themselves." (New York Herald Tribune). "With brilliant descriptive power and an emetic vocabulary, [Kersh] has produced a tormented and forceful work." (Commonweal).
