‘In the title story of [The Adventures of God in His Search for the Black Girl] the main character, God himself, expresses a taste for writing that’s sophisticated, stylish, literary. The words apply very well to [Brigid] Brophy’s own best work.’ New Republic
‘What we have here is more common in England than America: reading that’s at once very light and very intellectual. Consistent with her commitment to artifice and the rococo, Brophy believes in play… [She] is liveliest when speaking-or making the illustrious dead speak-of the life of art, of literature, music, architecture, which she thinks about a lot and knows a lot about.’ Washington Post
‘Tasty and nutritious… generally wise and witty… full of game-playing… Brigid Brophy remains a good though very British writer-balanced, erudite, sensible, unsubmissive to shrill sociological shibboleths, above all unscared.’ Anthony Burgess, New York Times Book Review
