Raving Reviewer of the Day: Justin Cartwright
There are more characters — many more, including a Muslim sex therapist — in this unrelenting torrent of dialogue and farce, which rolls on for over 500 pages. But there is a very serious talent and a very serious intent behind this apparent gallimaufry. Barker captures — and lovingly distorts — both the rhythms and the banality of language. She is, as it were, Harold Pinter on crack.
