Product description

Review

Praise for ‘The Subject Steve’:

‘Sam Lipsyte is a wickedly gifted writer.’ Robert Stone

‘Sam Lipsyte is a gifted stylist, precise, original, devious, and very funny. In a time when the language of most novels is dead on arrival, this book, about a dying man, is startlingly alive.’ Jeffrey Eugenides, author of ‘The Virgin Suicides’

‘I laughed out loud – and I never laugh out loud. You’ll want to rest up before reading this one. And after. Thank you, Sam.’ Chuck Palahniuk, author of ‘Fight Club’

‘A brilliant novel, in every conceivable way.’ Toby Litt

‘An original voice: smart, savvy…intensely funny.’ TLS

‘The best thing since George Saunders last broke cover…Kind of Beckett meets “Six Feet Under”, comedy doesn’t come much blacker than this.’ Uncut

‘Rowdy, shocking and lyrical…very funny.’ New Yorker

'Lipsyte is certainly not without talent' Norman Mailer

'Sam Lipsyte can get blood out of a stone… I gripped this book so hard my knuckles turned white.' Edmund White
