From the Trade Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover: "Dazzling...a comic masterpiece crackling with backhanded wit... bursting with vital characters...a novel of uncommon richness....Its brilliantly contrived plot uncoils with the suspense of a thriller."

-- New York Times Book Review"A holy terror of a book...[It has] immense power and passion.... Half mystery, half panegyric and wholly one of a kind, Mile Zero is [a] fascinating novel about the end of the American road and the beginnings of a new world."

-- Washington Post Book World

"A mythmaking and magisterial novel." -- Vanity Fair
