    Praise for The Hippopotamus

    "The Hippopotamus is animated by an antic sense of comedy and features a willfully feckless hero . . . Described in uproarious terms that suggest Wodehouse crossed with Waugh, Swafford emerges as a parody of every upper-class country house ever depicted in an English novel."
    —The New York Times

    "The literary godchild of British comic novelist Kingsley Amis . . . Perfectly funny."
    USA Today

    "[The Hippopotamus's] virtues are cynicism and ill will, directed energetically at all that is trendy and modern, and embodied in the blubbery, whiskified carcass of an out-of-date poet named Ted Wallace . . . He rages entertainingly at a glorious array of targets."
    TIME Magazine

    “This near-perfect book happens to be the most entertaining, worthwhile antidote to drear you’ll ever find.”
    Entertainment Weekly

    "Tootingly and tremendously funny."
    —Christopher Buckley, author of Thank You for Smoking

    "This novel is clevery, as we have come to expect from Stephen Fry, and witty, as we have come to expect from Stephen Fry. What is not so expected is that it looks like Fry's Brideshead. There seems to be a pattern in the carpet, there seems to be a theme of spiritual redemption and the operation of grace. But the carpet, being Fry's, has a twist in it and the pattern is not what it seems."
    Sunday Times

    "Imagine P.G. Wodehouse consumed with lust and suffering from a bad hangover, and you have a pretty good idea of the tone of Stephen Fry's very funny and wickedly irreverent second novel."
    The Miami Herald

    "My goodness, what fruity language Fry uses! You can feel his enjoyment, and also the huge force of high desire to please you, as you read this."
    —Daily Mail

    "Marvelous dialog enlivens a tale that is fraught with incest, bestiality, and English humor."
    Library Journal

    "One of the funniest people writing on either side of the Atlantic . . . like a combination of Evelyn Waugh and Kingsley Amis, but funnier than either."
