Praise for The Rachel Papers

“Scurrilous, shameless and very funny”

Times Literary Supplement

“Amis's arrogantly assured manner is a formidable weapon, spraying the target with disdainful wit, ingenious obscenity, astute literariness, loathing, lust, anxiety and an all-pervading hyper-self-consciousness”

Observer

“Amis has brought off the feat of satirizing his contemporaries while making them both funny and, in a bizarre way, moving”
