Product description

Review

‘Sam Lipsyte is a gifted stylist, precise, original, devious, and very funny.’ Jeffrey Eugenides, author of ‘Middlesex’

‘Sam Lipsyte can really write. Sentence after sentence is clever, agile, amused; they torque away, at the last moment, from what you might expect. One-liners abound, often freighted with darkness and insight; Lipsyte is playful and lewd, bleak and farcical, walking a fine line between near-glib humour and a genuine existential fear one could even call Beckettian.’ Guardian

‘Lipsyte’s fictional voice is incredibly self-assured, as if the world had been retranslated.’ Time Out

‘Lipsyte’s writing is inventive and playful…Deviant and hilarious, an absurdist picaresque.’ Literary Review
