"Karoo has all the ingredients of a truly great novel. Its plot has the pathos of a Greek tragedy and enough twists and turns to satisfy the most avid Raymond Chandler fan. The characters come alive as soon as they appear on the page. Fantastic" (Literary Review
"Utterly wonderful... This novel does supremely what novels were invented to do - it confronts the most unbearable sadness with a comic exhilaration that makes you almost pleased that life is tragic" (Howard Jacobson)
"Mordantly funny, unexpectedly moving and brutally honest about the business of making movies" (Richard E Grant)
"Fascinating. A real satiric invention, loaded with wise outrage" (Arthur Miller)
"Terrific. Nakedly honest, a tour de force of self-destruction. As Saul spirals into free-fall we're with him all the way, because he's so furiously funny" (Deborah Moggach)
"Drop whatever else you're reading. It won't be as good as Karoo. It certainly won't be as funny"
