Product description

Review

"His best work--it's terrific, piercing, and funny. The novel demonstrates every kind of strength." --David Lipsky, The New York Times Book Review

"James Sveck is a brilliant wit of a character whose voice will echo long after his story ends." --Kristin Kloberdanz, Chicago Tribune

"Deliciously vital right from the start . . . a piece of vocal virtuosity and possibly Cameron's best book . . . It is a bravura performance, and Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You is a stunning little book. " --Lorrie Moore, The New York Review of Books

"Cameron's prose handily marries the tangled logic of adolescence to simple, beautiful language." --Peter Terzian, Newsday

"Beautifully conceived and written . . . funny, sad, tender, and sophisticated." --Michael Cart, Booklist
