Magnus Mills is Britain's most original writer, so forget everything you've been told about fiction - he has never even heard of the rules that apply to everyone else The Times Just when you think Magnus Mills couldn't possibly get any better, off he goes. This is a masterpiece Dan Rhodes, author of Timoleon Vieta Come Home Comedy's blackest, funniest and most astute practitioner Daily Telegraph A beautiful, singular book; funny and acutely observed Independent on Sunday Mills is a true original who has always ploughed his own - occasionally surreal - furrow in a series of comic gems. His latest, a quirky mix of fairy tale and political satire, offers clear parallels between the fictional world and our own. It's like Orwell's 1984 rewritten by Tolkien Mail on Sunday One of our finest comic stylists on top form Financial Times A Cruel Bird is as utterly odd, endearing and disturbing a book as anything he has written before. The novel's unnamed narrator is the principal composer to the imperial court of a place called Greater Fallowfields, which bears about as much and as little resemblance to anywhere in the actual world as any of Mills' places and locations. The plot is similarly indistinct and, thus, vaguely and impressively massive -- Ian Samson Guardian
