"Mr. Sachs's debut [of] brief comic sketches . . . [is] a darkly glittering gem."
—Sam Sacks, The Wall Street Journal
"One of the funniest books of the year."
"Inherited Disorders is just plain funny . . . Sachs has a finely tuned sense of humor and an economical writing style that gives each story plenty of punch."
—Michael Patrick Brady, Boston Globe
" . . . stellar debut collection . . . Sachs proves himself a perceptive observer of human nature and a distinctly promising talent."
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Adam Ehrlich Sachs's debut marks the arrival of a major humorist. If Kafka and Louis CK were to join forces, they might produce something like Inherited Disorders: absurd, wise, and extremely funny."
—Simon Rich, author of Spoiled Brats and creator of Man Seeking Woman
"Don't miss out on this one . . . poignant and absurd . . . with an exceedingly light touch that floats, skips, and hops into a punch line."
—Matthew Zeitlin, Buzzfeed
—Adam Kirsch, Tablet
“In Inherited Disorders, Sachs displays a rare kind of genius: storytelling that’s humorous and absurdist, but also slyly compassionate and layered. There’s much wisdom about father-son relationships to accompany the intricate and sometimes laugh-out-loud literary fireworks. And in the process, Sachs captures the true richness and strangeness of the world—something of a classic in the making and a favorite read of the past few years.”
—Jeff VanderMeer, author of Annihilation
"Endlessly sharp and engaging from start to finish."
—Mary Vensel White, The Rumpus
