The Great Russian Novel In English

"It is a remarkable achievement, a version of the great Russian novel done in miniature, with echoes throughout of its mighty predecessors....In fewer than 250 taut but wonderfully allusive, powerful pages Amis has painted an impressively broad canvas, and achieved a telling depth of perspective. The first-person voice here possesses an authority that is new in Amis's work. It is as if in all of his books he has been preparing for this one."

- John Banville has many words of praise for Martin Amis' House of Meetings
