Product description

Review

[Alexei Sayle] is still among the very few comedians to write fiction which can be taken seriously as literature . . . It's also extremely funny. (Independent on Sunday)

It's filled with wry observations, likeable characters and a sense of imagination. (Elle)

Sayle's writing fizzes with a savagely inventive energy, wit and biting satire (Daily Mail)

'A brilliant writer...a great novelist' (Richard and Judy)

'This is a funny, frightening book which is also refreshingly bonkers. It's meticulously plotted and persuasive.' (Guardian on THE WEEPING WOMAN HOTEL)

'This is a novel composed of surreal flights of fancy and spot-on comedy.' (Independent on THE WEEPING WOMAN HOTEL)

'He could be our new Kingsley Amis.' (Sunday Express)

Sayle is very funny, gabbling out a story that is as tall as a tower block and ridiculously entertaining (The Times)

considered pitch-perfect prose of a talented novelist who also happens to have a wildly perverse imagination, and a store of beautifully delivered one-liners (Scotsman)

It's brilliant! It's very funny... very touching without laying on the sentiment. (Jenny Colgan)

'It's even better than they say' (Clive James, Sunday Telegraph on OVERTAKEN)

'Being able to wrap up a big moral conundrum with the guise of a fizzing entertainment is a considerable gift...it is wonderfully entertaining' (Jonathan Coe, Guardian on OVERTAKEN)

MISTER ROBERTS has the best qualities the man himself exudes in his comedy work: brains, wit and welcome absurdity. But there is also a surprising amount of warmth... it is a fine short novel, the perfect present for all your warm-hearted, secular humanist friends this Christmas (Guardian)

Book Description

Critically acclaimed author Alexei Sayle introduces the curious tale of MISTER ROBERTS in his most funny and poignant novel yet.
