Line after line of sparkling malice...a fierce and funny book * Harpers & Queen * A novel of rare intelligence and ambition...Funny, insightful, beautifully plotted * Time Out * It makes you laugh, it makes you blub...an excellent and entertaining read * Daily Mail * A plot of marvellous intricacy...it provokes peals of horrid laughter * Observer * Combines wit, panache and extravagance with a penetrating moral sense...delightfully readable and not a little disturbing * Scotsman * A Vicious Circle has the zest and mordant wit of an early Evelyn Waugh and it is a testament to Craig's talent that the characters leap off the page despite their often cartoon-like grotesquerie . . . In an age in which we are seriously lacking comic novels with bite, A Vicious Circle is a wonderful tonic - a work that makes you cry with laughter but also eats unforgettably into your soul * Sunday Telegraph * An excellent novel * Fay Weldon, Sunday Times * A brilliant disquisition on the way we live now...No wonder some people mention it in the same breath as Vanity Fair. Its treatment of ambition, of social rise and fall, warrant the comparison...a hugely entertaining book * Cressida Connolly, The Oldie *
