Product description

Review

Dogma by Lars Iyer is the kind of book that we are always told never gets published any more: uncompromisingly intellectual, passing strange and absurdly funny. If Lars Iyer hadn't already written Spurious, it would be possible to call his second novel a unique event. As it is, it's just more of the same, only better. Iyer's weird talent continues to grow, and the misadventures of his miserable characters are starting to seem like the brightest things in modern British fiction. - The Guardian (chosen as one of 2012's Best Books of the Year)

Dogma, like its prequel Spurious, is provocative in its arguments, scrupulously plain in its style and excoriating in its honesty. Iyer is an author who rejects the parochialism and timidity we too often associate with British novelists in favour of an ugly grapple with the big themes. - The Spectator

The epithet Beckettian is perhaps the most overused in criticism, frequently employed as a proxy for less distinguished designations such as sparse or a bit depressing . But Lars Iyer s fiction richly deserves this appellation. His playfully spare and wryly depressing landscape, incorporating a bickering double act on a hopeless, existential journey, is steeped in the bathos, farce, wordplay and metaphysics of the man John Calder referred to as the last of the great stoics , its characters accelerating towards a condition of eternal silence, fuelled only by the necessity of speaking out. -- - The Times Literary Supplement

Praise for Spurious

It's wonderful. I'd recommend the book for its insults alone. -Sam Jordison, The Guardian

I'm still laughing, and it's days later -The Los Angeles Times

Fearsomely funny. -- - The Washington Post

"Fearsomely funny." ---The Washington Post
