The Mighty Walzer Reviews
"Jacobson writes with such verve, and his sense of humor is so sharp, that he could turn a novel of basket weaving into a ripsnorter." - Publishers Weekly
"Starred Review. A delight from start to finish, and a note-perfect evocation of the gray 1950s." - Kirkus Reviews
"Poignant, moving, hilarious... laugh-out-loud funny... the sort of book that might change your life." - Observer (UK)
"Jacobson is a great storyteller: phrases, anecdotes and atmosphere roll off the page with the ease and sublime, scary grace of drunken eels - he is unsurpassable." - The Times (UK)
"This mature novel has the sustained exuberance and passion of his youthful writing... an achingly funny book... an amazing achievement... There are few novelists today who can imbue the trifles of life with such poetry." - Independent (UK)
"Marvellous. Jacobson has not just written the first great novel about ping-pong. He has written one of the greatest sporting novels ever." - Sunday Telegraph (UK)
"[Jacobsons] humour is unashamedly savage and his jokes as sharp as a switch-blade... comic vitriol worthy of Evelyn Waugh." - Express on Sunday (UK)
