“Witty, intelligent, compassionate . . . an absolutely smashing first novel.”The Plain Dealer
“You’ll remember it for a long time.”The Minneapolis Tribune
“One of the year’s truly freshly conceived and carried out novels, one whose not always so gentle ironies address themselves to a broader range of life than is to be found in Staggerford, Minnesota.”The Kansas City Star
“A thoroughly convincing X-ray vision of small-town life . . . so sincere, so true, so honest with itself, and so very, very funny that a reader often has to wipe the tears out of the corners of his eyes before he can—as he must—read on.”The Houston Post
“Very entertaining . . . [Miles is] one of the most likable protagonists of modern fiction.”The Pittsburgh Press
“Staggerford, Minnesota, is a town out of control. It is as weird and convoluted as any lover of comic fiction could wish.”Boston Herald American
