Praise

“The funniest serious novel I have read since–well, maybe since Portnoy’s Complaint.” — Tom De Haven, The New York Times Book Review

“There is a big, wry heart beating at the center of Russo’s fiction.” —The New Yorker

“[Russo] skewers academic pretensions and infighting with mad abandon…in a clear and muscular prose that is a pleasaure to read….I had to stop often to guffaw, gasp, wheeze, and wipe away my tears.” — Henry Kisor, Chicago Sun-Times

“Bursting with humor and insight.” —USA Today
