'A delight ... Morris writes with a pleasingly conversational tone and a dry humour and affection that undercuts the more preposterous behaviour described here … Juicy little nuggets litter the book'
'Gossipy, waspish, biased, score-settling and very entertaining'
'Uproariously funny … [Morris’s] anecdotes are all told with a dry but good-natured humour … these figures make for highly entertaining company'
'An exceptionally lively, crisply written, independent-minded survey of one of the most bizarre groups of misfits who ever lived'
Mail on Sunday
'A carnival of wackiness'
'A compelling compendium of all the major players … page-turning … The book strikes the right balance between recognizing the artistic achievements of the milieu, as well as their colourful personal lives'
