For some reason, this book reminds me of the Marx brothers. Korzwinkle inserts these deft one sentence descriptions that tweek the reader into an unexpected direction. I don't know if there is anybody out there that can write the satire that Kotwinkle enjoys and get away with the hyperbole, but he does it in such a funny fashion, that he carries the reader on a merry romp and you just hold onto your side laughing for dear life. Thank you, William, for your wicked sense of fun.
William Kotzwinkle has always been a great author of humor, and his books always have a very fun feel to them. This story of a tabloid office is no exception, as Midnight Examiner might as well have been a composite of Kotzwinkle's work. Though all of his characters are comedic and goofy in their own way, he always manages to apply that neccessary dose of sympathy.
There may be some of that ol' Kotzwinkle sadness buried under here, this is not a book without a purpose, but most of all it's just possibly the funniest thing I ever read. Don't deny yourself this pleasure.
