Rich in the forensic detail that's made Arnott the pop-culture laureate he is...breathless and compelling
Fascinating, compelling, pulpy - all you'd expect from a writer who just keeps getting better.
Bristling with contained energy and generating a white-hot unease. Best of all, the novel rescues the 1970s from the simple-minded dismissal of the entire decade as a kitsch-only zone...as Arnott argues with urgent, spellbinding power, it was a decade aflame rather than just flaming'
Beautifully observed and brilliantly paced...a fascinating portrait of impotence and amorality by a writer unafraid to take risks
Once again he has skewered an age to the page...funny, sexy, touching, too, but it is the undertow of dread beneath the antics that makes it a serious achievement
'Undoubtedly Arnott's best invention to date.'
