A brilliantly funny spy novel, this morality tale of a Secret Service gone mad features sex, gluttony, violence, and treachery. From the author of the ground-breaking A Clockwork Orange.
“Tremor of Intent has more wit and comic invention than the books which it so boisterously ridicules…The talent is as unsettling as it is prodigious.” — New Republic
“A gleaming novel of ideas…brazenly clever. He is possessed by a black sense of humor…Burgess is nothing if not outrageous.” — Webster Schott, New York Times Book Review
“One of my favorite Burgess books. I think he set out to write a satire of a spy novel but he made the story, the writing, the characters, so good that it became an amusing spy novel.” — Alan Furst, author of Mission to Paris
“[The] spy novel to end all spy novels.” — Francis Brown, former editor of the New York Times Book Review
