“First, this is a terrific novel. I’ll get that out of the way, because trying to describe it is like Monty Python’s TV quiz, “Summarise Proust”. The plot is wild and unexpected, with a dash of sinister, and it’s incredibly funny.” – The Times

“★★★★★ – A hysterical delight. Brilliantly written. A hilarious and fresh take on modern life.” – Heat

“Danny Wallace’s beguiling second novel seduces the reader by stealth with some laugh-out-loud throwaway pieces of astute observational comedy, joke after joke evoking recognition in the reader. He’s as funny about local radio as Alan Partridge, which is saying something, but there’s a lot more here than superficial gloss, as Wallace probes real issues about what makes us who we are in the internet age. It’s the kind of book you have to ration to avoid it being over too quickly.” – Daily Mail

“It’s a rich comic premise, and Danny Wallace exploits it to the full. It’s funny, witty, clever, good-natured – one of those purely-enjoyable books you pick up with pleasure and put down with regret.” – The Independent

“Brilliant, hilarious, sharp.” – The Sun

“Incredibly funny. Danny Wallace writes a great male protagonist.” – Stylist

“Deftly-crafted… seemingly effortless… sharp writing.” – The List

“… will leave you completely mesmerised.” – Now

“An air of mystery, a past being reconstructed, with a booster shot of comedy…” – The Observer

“Wallace has scored another hit with this quirky novel. Packed full of gags, this is also a tender and touching story.” – Sunday Mirror

“Danny Wallace has done it again. ‘Who is Tom Ditto?’ is both a hoot and deeply engaging. Very clever stuff.” – Henry Sutton

“‘Who is Tom Ditto?’ is Danny Wallace at his very best. Funny, assured and relentlessly clever. A brilliant novel.” – John Niven

“Tremendous. Funny, beguiling and stealthily profound.” – William Boyd

“Funny yet tender. Wallace’s knack of grounding a madcap adventure with hilarious, quotidian detail gives him the edge.” – Stylist

“Brilliant. As hilarious as always.” – ShortList

“Chortlesome.” – Bella

“Danny Wallace is one of the cleverest writers around. ‘Who is Tom Ditto?’ is the most surprising book I have ever read.” – ChickLit Reviews and News

“Wallace has shown he can successfully transfer his established humour to fictional situations with ease, carefully developing a deep story with a consistently grounded humour.” – Emerald Street

“A funny and clever novel from the award-winning writer.” – Marie Claire

    After reading the brilliant Charlotte Street I found myself buying Who is Tom Ditto?
    I absolutely loved it! I loved the 2 main characters and well done to Danny for not having them falling into each others arms or into bed, their relationship grew into the perfect friendship.
    My favourite chapter was the unexpected dinner party, Pia was just perfect and Tom’s reactions to her were so damn funny. The throwaway comment about the guest putting down her jam sandwich completely cracked me up. Well done Danny Wallace, I can’t wait for your next novel!
