"Reuss has written a compelling story of a man’s spiraling journey inward to an altered mental state…. hilariously on the mark." —St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"The Wasties is one of the most interesting…books of the year." —Rocky Mountain News

“Caruso’s observations are by turns hilarious and devastating, and even as he gradually losses his sanity, they often ring true.” —Washingtonian Magazine

"Reuss has finesse. He is able to evoke suffering and loneliness–especially as it is felt by Caruso’s wife–but plays them as background tones in a monologue dominated by Caruso’s bright, vibrant voice." –-New York Sun
