In the interest of fairness

Having posted a set of good reviews for Complaint, I feel obliged to share this less positive one in the New Statesman. The reviewer found it a "disappointingly shallow book". What's missing, apparently, is the importance of "class consciousness".
I could counter-complain, but when you're lucky enough to have a book published and have it widely reviewed, you have to accept that not all will be good.
