'Echoes of Douglas Adams at his more mischievous. Top marks for originality and subversive humour' - Maxim Jakubowski, Crime Time, 'It's pretty dark, but like the best comedic writing, makes you laugh by mugging you with something extraordinary after the mundane, or the other way around. It questions power, propaganda and corruption, while maintaining emotional intelligence. It's also bloody funny' - Jan Woolf, International Times
