'You cannot put it down: witty, moving and it's all about sex. Truly original.' Margaret Drabble

'I am not an expert on sex, but I was a good student of the women I loved, and I'll try to recall those happy and unhappy experiences which, I believe, made a man out of me,' writes the narrator of this novel. Originally published by the author himself in 1965, In Praise of Older Women became an international bestseller and renowned classic, and its title is now part of the language.'

'A tender and beautiful book' Michael Frayn

'A masterpiece ... dazzling ... like all great novels, it shows the truth about life' Le Monde

'Spectacular! It's always a risky business, re-reading a book which was important to you in your adolescence. But re-reading this one, I was struck by a great deal that I missed before a much richer book than I remembered. Immensely pleasurable.' A. A. Gill

'A skinny book with a funny name, a title I didn't know, by an author I'd never heard of, which turns out to be just wonderful.' John Self, theasylum.wordpress.com

'We all ould approach sex with the freedom Stephen Vizinczey writes about it a masterclass in the politics of men and women... uplifting... One day sex itself may be this good!' Patrick Kielty

'One of the great novels of the second half of the 20th century... the greatest living writer.' Harry Reid, Herald
