Reviews

Very probably the funniest book ever written

* Sunday Times *
Screamingly funny and wildly subversive -- Marian Keyes * Guardian *
Delicious ... Cold Comfort Farm has the sunniness of a P. G. Wodehouse and the comic aplomb of Evelyn Waugh's Scoop' * Independent *
One of the finest parodies written in English...a wickedly brilliant skit -- Robert Macfarlane * Guardian *
