A brilliantly funny spy novel from the author of A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgess.
Tremor of Intent has more wit and comic invention than the books which it so boisterously ridicules ... The talent is as unsettling as it is prodigious
A gleaming novel of ideas ... brazenly clever. He is possessed by a black sense of humor ... Burgess is nothing if not outrageous
One of the cleverest and most original writers of his generation
Anthony Burgess has always been a huge favorite of mine, his writing is rich and tempting, like dessert. And Tremor of Intent is one of my favorite Burgess books. I think he set out to write a satire of a spy novel but he made the story, the writing, the characters, so good that it became an amusing spynovel. And some of the passages (the eating contest on a cruise ship) are among the best you'll ever read
