"Craig Brown is the wittiest writer in Britain today." --Stephen Fry "The book that made me laugh most was Craig Brown's quirky game of biographical consequences." --Julian Barnes, Times Literary Supplement "Books of the Year" "Craig Brown is something of a national treasure in Britain. . . . Hello Goodbye Hello is a bravura feat of narrative engineering. . . . A joyful, fun read espsecially for its widgety, ingenious construction." --David Kamp, Vanity Fair "Captivating...Glittering...Engaging...Entertaining...[Brown] has whipped up a gratifying summertime confection -- funny, diverting, occasionally sad." --Michiko Kakutani, New York Times "Deliciously clever and amusing...Hello Goodbye Hello is splendid company, not to mention perfect for the beach, the lake or the pool." --Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post "Hello Goodbye Hello is a hilarious book, clever and thoroughly researched...dip into this book anywhere and you will be rewarded with something delightful." --Moira Hodgson, Wall Street Journal "Brown's collection of odd encounters could be titled Famous People Behaving Badly. They're irresistible." --People
