Product description

Review

"An imaginative and energetic triumph. What you hear from the onset of" Apologize, Apologize!" is the delicious sound of a gifted novelist taking flight for the first time. Even sitting on a table with its covers closed, Elizabeth Kelly's novel seems to buck and heave with its deliriously talkative and unforgivingly articulate characters. (Think of Dostoevsky on laughing gas.)" "David Gilmour, author of THE FILM CLUB and A FINE NIGHT TO GO TO CHINA""

"A warm and wonderful tale with smart, sassy, yet gentle sensitivity. Elizabeth Kelly writes with an original rhythmic style that ushers us in as we turn the first page of this magnificent story of family ties, devotion, understanding and acceptance. I loved this book!" "Daryl Roth""

"Listen up, readers . . . Meet the Flanagans, a quasifunctional family that might give Jonathan Franzen pause . . . Kelly is a clever, witty wordsmith with a penchant for apt if over-the-top metaphors that are laugh-out-loud funny." "Booklist""

" By the age of twenty, Collie Flanagan, the protagonist of Elizabeth Kelly's splendid first novel, "Apologize, Apologize!, "has been tested by fate to the limit. The startling and painful wit of Collie's voice makes Holden Caulfield sound like a kindergartner, and lays waste to the acres of banalities and cliches that usually accompany stories about redemption. Rich with moral nuance and narrative surprise, this is a book as delightful as it is moving -in short, a magnificent debut. Ms. Kelly is a big talent and the book is deeply humane and subtle as well as wildly funny ." "Elizabeth Frank, author of Cheat and Charmer and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Louise Bogan: A Portrait.""

"In this unflinching and funny debut, Elizabeth Kelly deftly paints her tale in alternating shades of lush whimsy and hard-won ferocity. "Apologize, Apologize! "reads as if Padgett Powell's "Edisto" had a first cousin from New England who was wealthier, more eccentric, more gothic and more drunk."
"Mark Winegardner, author of Crooked River Burning and The Godfather Returns""
