It reminds one of The Catcher in the Rye, but it's better-sharper, funnier, and more poignant' (Walker Percy) 'A remarkable book... there is not a line that simply slides by; each, in one way or another, turns things to a fresh and unexpected angle. There are splendid things said' (Richard Eder, Los Angeles Times) 'Sly, pungent, lyric, funny, and unlikely to be forgotten' (R. Z. Sheppard, Time)"
