'The fantasy is gay and sparkling throughout, and it is obvious that writing it was a real labour of  love.  But in disposing of Russell's enemies Myra shows again that, although she prefers the rapier and the scalpel, she can, when the offender deserves it, administer a kick like a horse.

In The Bitches' Brew there is much telling argument and much light relief.  The spirit of Myra Buttle herself appears, and there are clever pastiches and parodies of Shirley, Blake, Byron, Shelley, Browning, W. E. Henley, Hilaire Belloc, and 'Macbeth'.  Altogether a scintillating production which will further enhance Myra's reputation as a satirist, lyricist, and social commentator and carve for her an elevated niche in the Temple of Letters.'
