Product description

Review

A voraciously original travelogue through the American century, a love letter to modernity, and a hilarious and often tender insight into the monster of celebrity. O'Hagan's portrait of Sinatra has to rate among the finest and funniest ever written ... O'Hagan has created a comic genius ... Glorious. --Evening Standard<br ><br >A subtle, funny and moving study of America on the eve of one of its periods of greatest crisis ... Maf the canine savant is a shrewd observer of the modern age and of the American century, a veritable Tocqueville for our times. --John Banville, Guardian<br ><br >An absolutely delightful, stylishly written, gorgeously lyrical novel. The Life And Opinions ... is his fourth and best yet. --Herald

It's staggering, joyous and somewhat unnerving that [O'Hagan's] new book, in a classic critic-confounding way, should be anarchic, over-the-top, irreverent and gleeful. There is an elegiac undertow, but one that only serves to make the dazzle and delight all the more piquant. --Scotland on Sunday

[One of} the best novels I have read this year ... his crowded and deleriously wonderful comedy of ideas ... O'Hagan has stupendous fluency and sanity, together with a slightly surreal reliance on autobiography.
--New Statesman

Book Description

An utterly unique new novel from one of Britain's most exciting literary writers.
