Reviews for The Fine Art of Chinese Brush Painting

'His tale of an illegitimate member of the squirearchy earning his inheritance by increasingly nasty methods is both inventive and pacy' New Statesman 'Romp about one of nature's gentlemen making his innocent and ruthless way through the jungle of contemporary sex, VAT, law and order, etc... savage, knock-about farce' Observer 'Black humour, comic anarchy at its best' Sunday Times 'Crazy, but is all done with a savage delight which will have you laughing out loud' Daily Mirror 'He is funny, bitter, a danger to his public and should be applauded wildly by all' The Listener
