Review

Simon Rich is outrageously, lavishly gifted (Caitlin Moran)

A James Thurber for our times, in Borges' suit wearing Flann O'Brien's hat (Ian McMillan BBC Radio 3 The Verb 2013-02-15)

Brilliant: a kind of modern version of Woody Allen's Without Feathers for anyone who's been in love ... topsy-turvy imaginative, riotously funny, hugely insightful ... Rich has a wisdom about male-female interaction that most have to wait far, far longer than 28 years to gain. (Tom Cox Observer 2013-03-03)

A collection of sweet stories full of whimsical, gently moving tales of love and loss, thwarted come-ons and doomed crushes... Put it in your pocket and take it out whenever you need a five minute break from the tedium of everyday. (Lynn Enright The Gloss 2013-01-01)

Most original and highly amusing. Rich manages to turn the banal into the absurd... hilarious and touching... and impossible to put down. A perfect cheer-up for the romantically challenged! (Rachel Glover Image 2013-01-01)

The Last Girlfriend On Earthis silly, surreal, sometimes sad and always laugh-out-loud funny. This collection will have you giggling/crying/squirming in recognition, and wondering what exactly Simon Rich has eaten to dream all this stuff up ... This collection pulls off the tough trick of being both heart-warming and hilarious -it's a must-read if you've ever so much as had a crush on someone (Heat 2013-02-02)

Pithy, occasionally bonkers... expect any weeping to be of the laughter-induced variety (David Clack Time Out 2013-02-05)

Truly hilarious (Observer Eva Wiseman)

There are many episodes to enjoy ... The scenarios are satisfyingly wide-ranging ... an irreverent pleasure. (Frank Brinkley Literary Review 2013-04-01)

A laugh-out-loud collection of short stories about that crazy little thing called love. (Vogue Australia 2013-04-01)

If you buy only one quirky, surreal collection of comedy short stories about relationships this year, make it Simon Rich's The Last Girlfriend on Earth ... an endlessly inventive, laugh-out-loud book ... It's fairly spooky that Rich, though still in his 20s, has such telling and very humorous insights into the shortcomings and sensitivities of the male psyche ... this is a one-night stand you will definitely want to tell your friends about. (Jewish Chronicle 2013-04-11)

The Last Girlfriend on Earth had me giggling out loud (Emma Sells ELLE 2013-05-01)

A quirky and amusing collection (Julian Fleming Sunday Business Post 2013-06-30)

The Last Girlfriend on Earth shows off Rich's special talent for finding emotional truth in surreal premises (Hugh Montgomery Independent on Sunday 2013-08-04)

The Last Girlfriend on Earth and Other Love Stories by Simon Rich is my holiday reading recommendation. Read it on the plane with caution - you will laugh so loud people will think you're having some sort of episode. (Lauren Laverne ELLE 2013-11-27)

Rich is arguably the wittiest American humourist of his generation. (Ryan Gilbey Guardian 2013-07-17)
