Praise

Praise for FLIMSY LITTLE PLASTIC MIRACLES

“Currie’s most grounded work yet. . . [his] gorgeously questioning prose explores the deeper meaning things gain after they are gone.”
–The New Yorker

“Sharp and sarcastic, Currie’s dramatic story keeps you tethered in place…it’s a truly genuine love story wrapped in a series of comically improbable events.” thedailybeast.com
                                                                    
“A powerful, brilliant, compelling novel about love, writing, fame, fiction and shame that is emotionally effective and intellectually engaging, coming as close to anything I’ve read, to meeting David Foster Wallace’s call for fiction that makes the head beat like the heart.” bookslut.com

“So blisteringly funny that I laughed as I hadn’t laughed in years:  we’re talking demonic, unstoppable, don’t sit next to that guy howls.” The Washington Post

“Resounds with humor and insight into love, loss, and reality…An astonishing feat of innovation with surprises on nearly every page, Currie’s entrancing novel marks the work of a scathingly comic virtuoso.” ALA Booklist
                                                               
“A postmodern love story, self-consciously playful…things get both crazy and interesting…moving and hilarious.” Kirkus Reviews
 
“A metafictional tangle of debauchery and technological anxiety…Told in a bouncy, pinball style, this darkly droll novel is never boring.” Publishers Weekly
 
“Currie stays true to his gutsy, thoughtful, and unconventional self in this brilliant meditation on life, death, truth, and imperfection. Flimsy Little Plastic Miracles is flimsy like a brick sh*thouse. Ron Currie, Jr. is a fearless and inspired writer at the top of his game.  Read him.” —Jonathan Evison, author of The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving and West of Here
                                                                 
“Both a brilliantly constructed inquiry into the nature of reality and a soulful ode to the free fall of obsessive love. These two spines interweave ever more tightly till they fuse into a dazzling question mark with no easy answers. This is a beautiful book.” —Kate Christensen, author of The Astral and The Great Man
