Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
Among my favorite books of all time - as such, I have to call it massively underrated. Disch is so fearless in this collection, and I think this is his best book by a ways (I admire but don't love his novels). As with Cortazar, readers don't know what genre they have stepped into when they start a story - and how refreshing that is, when everything is supposed to have a label. Instead, what readers can count on is continuous provocation ---- and continuous entertainment. Satire, comedy, tragedy, invention, mystery, ambiguity, from an unassailable prose stylist. I have read this book many times and would never be parted from it.
