Praise

ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: NPR • THE A.V. CLUB

“Complex, daring, emotional, and unique.” —B. J. Novak, author of One More Thing

“Heartrending. . . . Poignant.” The Atlantic

“Sidesplitting. . . . Bizarre and hilarious.” Shelf Awareness (starred review)

“[These stories] conjure struggles for connection in grimly surreal alternative realities that recall the probing comic imaginings of George Saunders.” Los Angeles Times

 “Showcases Bob-Waksberg’s talent for conjuring fantastical scenarios and writing about them with a straight face. . . . Human relationships, he seems to be saying, are weirder than anything else our imaginations can come up with.” —NPR

“These stories, while infused with elements of fantasy, made me feel and feel more connected to the human condition.” —Elise Hu, TED Talks Daily

“Wonderfully absurd and unexpectedly moving. . . . These stories are at times poignant and triumphantly silly, but always manage to ring true.” Publishers Weekly

 “Bob-Waksberg’s fiction debut will capture many readers with its formal innovation, playful language, and relatable portraits of romance gone awry.” Booklist

“Very moving and true to today’s society. I’m so proud of my little Raphi.” —Florence Waksberg, author’s grandmother
