Praise

Praise for THE PINT MAN

“An exceedingly enjoyable first novel….it’s Rushin’s narrative voice, guileless, digressive, and ribald, riddled with wordplay and trivia, that makes this such a pleasure…..great company for an evening, with or without a pint at your elbow.”–Booklist
 

“What sets the work apart is Rodney’s sharp wit….Rushin emerges as one of the sharpest wits on the scene”–Publishers Weekly


”THE PINT MAN is clever, bracing, and full of laughs. Steve Rushin proves to be a master juggler of words, a mischievous crossword-puzzler run amok.”
–Carl Hiaasen, author of The Downhill Lie and Nature Girl


“I had so much fun reading THE PINT MAN. Rushin can do more tricks with words than Houdini with locks. There’s nobody in America like him. I would put him up against Ogden Nash-and spot Nash half the alphabet.”
–Rick Reilly, author of Who’s Your Caddy? and the upcoming Sports From Hell


“Steve Rushin’s The Pint Man is a wisecracking, rib-shaking, beer-stained, warm-hearted romp of a novel about a Midtown ne’er-do-well adrift in that elastic period between post-adolescence and manhood. It’s the literary equivalent to Happy Hour at some dreamy shambles of an Irish bar: a raucous carnival of laughter, gruff camaraderie, insults, arguments, languishment, romance, more laughter, blurred reflection, big sloppy hugs, and endless rounds of beer. Anyone who’s ever fallen head-over-heels in love with a bar will fall just as hard for this book.”
–Jonathan Miles, author of Dear American Airlines


“Steve Rushin has written a very funny book that’s also unexpectedly deep and poignant. And just so it’s clear, I wrote this blurb while completely sober.”
–A.J. Jacobs, author of The Know-it All and The Year of Living Biblically


Praise for Steve Rushin

“His work is imaginative, quirky, and insightful….. it is a pleasure to encounter a writer who seeks out the humanity and humor in competition.”—Booklist

“One of the most agile essayists around.”
Publishers Weekly

“Riotous”–Esquire 

“A real delight”–USA Today

“Rushin can cull a chortle from a cat.” –Denver Post

“Rushin’s wide-ranging cultural references and casually witty writing style appeal to both insiders and outsiders . . . This is modern literature, wearing broken-in sneakers.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune
