Review

"* 'One of the greatest American writers, a storyteller who cuts straight to the nerve.' Scott L. Turow 'Dexter, the gorgeous writer of hard beauties like Paris Trout, will make you laugh yourself into a fit one page and hold back tears the next... Throughout this sprawling heart-thumper of a read, the writing goes down like a feast.' Entertainment Weekly 'Pete Dexter, writing of the part played by love in the exuberant life of his hero, Spooner, and the fatal inevitability of the compromises that make life bearable, has given us a novel of picaresque vitality - outlandish, anecdotal, profuse, funny, profound.' Susanna Moore, author of In The Cut 'The best new novel I read this year' Mark Haddon on Train 'A grim and fascinating novel filled with wonderfully comic touches... A fine and engrossing work.' William Styron on Paris Trout 'A masterpiece, complex and breathtaking.' Los Angeles Times on Paris Trout 'Extraordinary... A formidable achievement... Other writers must now be measured against Pete Dexter.' San Francisco Chronicle on Train" --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Book Description
