Synopsis:

Catamount Notes, the Eastern Valley High School alumni newsletter, is filled with tales of success from the school's graduates, until Lewis "Teabag" Miner, class of 1989, sends a hilarious confession about his failure at love, work, and life. By the author of The Subject Steve.


Review:

"Lewis will win your heart early on....the kind of guy who gets stoned and imagines being strapped to 'a satellite in deep orbit, shooting out rays of entertainment'....HOME LAND is so good it even blurbs itself."

David Gates, Newsweek, 01/10/2005

Review:

"Lewis Miner, the underachieving antihero of Lipsyte's latest novel, HOME LAND, is the sort of character Samuel Beckett or Flann O'Brien might have created had they been raised in suburbia and cut their teeth on heavy metal, bad television and the slighter offerings at the local multiplex theater. And if, I suppose I should add, they'd spent too much time hunched over a bong....[Lipsyte has a] fine comic voice, which is an often-thrilling combination of pitch-perfect drollery and absurd contortions."

Brad Zellar, Minneapolis Star-Tribune, 01/02/2005

What if somebody finally wrote to his high school alumni bulletin and told.the truth! Here is an update from hell, and the most brilliant work to date, by the novelist whom Jeffrey Eugenides calls original, devious, and very funny and of whose first novel Chuck Palahniuk wrote, I laughed out loud---and I never laugh out loud. The Eastern Valley High School Alumni newsletter, Catamount Notes, is bursting with tales of success: former students include a bankable politician and a famous baseball star, not to mention a major-label recording artist. Then there is the appalling, yet utterly lovable, Lewis Miner, class of 89---a.k.a Teabag---who did not pan out. This is his confession in all its bitter, lovelorn glory.
