"Tao Lin writes from moods that less radical writers would let pass--from laziness, from vacancy, from boredom. And it turns out that his report from these places is moving and necessary, not to mention frequently hilarious."--Miranda July
, author of No One Belongs Here More Than You
"Tao Lin is the most distinctive young writer I've come upon in a long time: the most intrepid, the funniest, the strangest. He is completely unlike anyone else."--Brian Morton
, author of Starting Out in the Evening
"I was immediately blown away: the stylistic audacity of [Eeeee Eee Eeee and Bed] is inspiring; despite the talking animals, these are dark works about the alienation of modern times."
--Tony O'Neill, The Guardian
"Eeeee Eee Eeee is an un-self-conscious yet commanding tour de force."
"Eeeee Eee Eeee is one of the first novels in a long time that made me laugh out loud--a wonderful, honest and cathartic laugh. Finally, someone published something written by a young person about a young experience that feels organic and real..."
--Jennifer Bassett, KGB Bar Lit Magazine
"Stimulating and exciting...It doesn't often happen that a debuting writer displays not only irrepressible talent but also the ability to undermine the conventions of fiction and set off in new directions. Tao Lin, who is 24, does it."
--San Francisco Bay Guardian
"Later one day looking back at this review I'll know I wrote it after reading the novel twice straight through because it's hard to not want to write like Tao Lin but it's even harder to actually do it. I know people who don't read very often who should read this book because like Denis Johnson it's funny and addictive and talks straight into your ear instead of from somewhere far gone. I know people who read constantly who should read this because Tao Lin's sentences are so good they sometimes make me shudder. While doing so, or immediately after, or occasionally a long time after, they make me laugh. It's very hard to make someone shudder and then laugh. Tao Lin persists."
--Blake Butler, Bookslut
"Tao Lin's fiction will kick your ass and say thank you afterwards!"--Amy Fusselman
, author of The Pharmacist's Mate
"A revolutionary."--The Stranger
"Prodigal, unpredictable."--Paste Magazine
"...wry, imaginative and off-kilter...charts the tribulations of a heartbroken pizza delivery guy living in a suburb where bears talk and dolphins attempt to commit murder."--Time Out New York
