‘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

If you've ever been to high school, you will need to read this book. If you've ever been in love, you will need to read this book. If you've ever felt misunderstood, overlooked, not taken seriously, you need to read this book, because no matter how bad it was, Lewis has had it worse.
I started to mark all the great lines in this book and stopped when I realized that nearly every line was underlined... I've even read some passages to a stranger on a flight to California after they asked me why I was laughing so hard. We bonded and I think I've changed his life for good after writing down the name Sam Lipsyte on an American Airlines napkin. Unless you are lucky enough to be sitting next to me on the next flight, where I will be reading the book for a second helping, do yourself a favor and order it now.
This is funny. Nobody does this. You think that turdy, little David Sedaris is funny? Cheeky at times, maybe, but who needs cheeky when there's a war on? Lipsyte brings tears again and again, and believe me, you need a good cry.
It's time to suffer, people, you're overripe. Give it up to Sam Lipsyte. Give in. Put down your bestsellers and your book club selections. Stop watching so much television. Stop playing it safe. You are Sam Lipsyte's dog and you're misbehaving. It's time for a swift kick.
with nothing else to read. Pretentious rubbish in my opinion,not funny and virtually unreadable. Didn't
bother bringing the book home with me.
