most fun i've had in bed this year!,
This review is from: Pocket Kings (Paperback)
at last someone has captured the schizophrenic fallout of the internet driven life. heller is a terrifc writer. and he has skewered us all with his tale of an anti-hero who escapes his disappointing reality by morphing daily into chip zero, a virtual poker king who manages to earn a better living as an avatar than as a flesh and blood novelist. i laughed and cringed (with recognition) as i gobbled up this well crafted, darkly comedic prose. the characters are amusingly flawed and realistically disappointing. in other words: wonderful. the most fun i've had in bed this year!
