“Touching as well as hilariously lewd…. Roth is vibrantly talented…as marvelous a mimic and fantasist as has been produced by the most verbal group in human history.”
–Alfred Kazin, “New York Review of Books”
“Deliciously funny…absurd and exuberant, wild and uproarious… a brilliantly vivid reading experience.”– “New York Times Book Review”
