Both crisply precise and extravagantly daring ... The Insult is a remarkable achievement * Sunday Telegraph * A stunning premise, brilliantly unravelled ... It confirms Thomson in the front rank of English authors * Observer * The Insult met every requirement I felt I could possibly have of a novel ... Breathtakingly clever * The Times *
