Praise for Small World

“The most brilliant and also the funniest novel that he has written”

London Review of Books

“Ingenious and proliferate plotting...a new comic debacle over every pages ”

The Times

“Academic infightings, couplings touching, funny and frightful, set pieces, dark humour, sharp wit and plain farce - here is everything one expects from this author but thricefold and three times as entertaining as anything he has written before”

Sunday Telegraph

“A wonderful tissue of outrageous coincidences and correspondences, teasing elevations of suspense and delayed climaxes”

Observer
