Henry Bech, the celebrated author of Travel Light, has been scrutinised, canonised and vilified by reviewers, academics, critics and readers across the world. Suffering from temporary impotence and not-so-temporary writer's block, Bech finds renewed fame when he returns to his native America and Think Big, his all-time blockbuster, hits the bookstalls.
'Bech is one of the most entertaining comic creations in recent modern fiction.'
'No funnier account of the celebrity life has yet appeared.'
Michael Ratcliffe, The Times
'The Bech books are fun, and ample evidence of the author's intellectual energy, his skill in dialogue, his eye for detail.'
Frank Kermode, London Review of Books
