Review

International praise for "LITTLE CAESAR"

"A major novel filled with sharp psychological insights and fine writing . . . Wieringa shifts effortlessly between myth and reality, and lines up one felicitous idea after another. Tommy Wieringa is, mark my words, the greatest living novelist of Dutch letters." --"Vrij Nederland"

"A masterpiece."-"Boek Magazine"

"Dazzling . . . The pleasure in storytelling leaps from the pages. A fascinating novel." --"Trouw"


"Beautifully lyrical storytelling under a banner of gray skies and heavy hearts; one gorgeous, epic reminder than no matter what skeletons we have in our closet, we all try our best and our hardest to do well by the ones we love--as Morrissey has sung: 'That's how people grow up.'" --Dan Kennedy, Host of The Moth Storytelling Podcast, author of "ROCK ON: An Office Power Ballad"

"Although perfectly charming as picaresque, the tragedy of Unger's plight registers just as strongly as its understated oddness . . . Wieringa plays for keeps." --"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)

"The poet Philip Larkin's famous observation that your mom and dad really mess you up is aptly illustrated in this offbeat, atmospheric novel . . . [a] haunting book." --"Kirkus Reviews"

"A potent, emotionally moving, beautifully realized novel about a young man seeking to understand his difficult, eccentric parents. . . . Wieringa masterfully examines the complex and often agonizing work that many of us undertake to live our own healthy, independent, adult lives." --"Library Journal"

"Tommy Wieringa's inventive coming-of-age novel [involves] deeply flawed characters, maddening in their poor choices, but in Wieringa's nimble hands, they elicit our sympathy." --"Cleveland Plain Dealer"

"Tommy Wieringa's ambitious novel is a brilliant exploration of the uneasy transition from adolescence into adulthood--the restlessness, yearning for stability, irrational decisions and erotic obsessions." --"The Independent" (UK) --This text refers to the paperback edition.
