Reviews

The funniest writer now working in the English language . . . His humour has bite and an angry underside that puts him in the great tradition of English satirists
*Stephen King*

Riotous Assembly is a masterpiece of black farce, and makes me suppose that there is a true comic genius here
*Spectator*

Savagely hilarious
*Sunday Mirror*

Riotous Assembly has done to the South African police what Catch-22 did to the American Air Force
