"Funny, appalling, frightening" Mail on Sunday "A brilliant satirical study of the ugly dynamic which draws together predators and prey" Sunday Telegraph "Not for the fainthearted... Highly entertaining" Sunday Times "Funny and eloquently obscene" Daily Telegraph "A worthy sequel... A touching love song to the possibilities and limits of friendship.
