Tom is the pluckier of the two, because pluck means overcoming ones fears. Piers has no such fears to overcome- he is ambitious. As the post-war years witness a division in their aspirations and their destinies, the two brothers strive to achieve their own means of setting the world on fire. With rich characterization, virtuoso scenes of comedy, and sparkling dialogue, Setting the World On Fire provides a brilliant anatomy of post-war English society from 1948 to 1969.

It is superb entertainment and social criticism but it is also a poem about the fire in human beings...A moving and disturbing book and a very superior piece of art - Anthony Burgess, Observer.
